Woolston Friendship Club
We are proud to work alongside St Patrick's Parish and Communicare in Southampton to create a weekly friendship club which is open to all members of the public to help bring the older and younger generations together. Every Wednesday a group of children and staff meet up with local residents to enjoy cake, friendship and laughter and sometimes special activities such as ballroom dancing and singing.
The children love going and the older people love connecting with the younger generation, sharing their wisdom and learning new things.
ITV News loved the idea so much they came to do a feature on us:
