Listen Again – 11/12/2019 :: Friends for Leisure

Frankie & Gillian from Friends for Leisure were Ian Maddock’s guests on today’s Late Lunch The Late Lunch every weekday at noon.

Friends for leisure have activities in Crewe on Tuesday evenings in term time at All Saints Church on Stewart Street.  They have Crewe Juniors for young people aged 8-13 and Crewe Youth Group for young people aged14-21.  Our last activity of the year is a Christmas party with Crewe Juniors.Our activities start again in January.

Our Focus for this month is “Lonely this Christmas”.  Many would probably assume being lonely is more an issue for older people but younger people who find difficulties making friends are affected by loneliness.

We spoke about Friends for Leisure activities from one-to-one friendships through to group activities. Offering activities such as drama and sports sessions, for disabled children & young people aged 5-21 who live in Cheshire East. We also help our children and young people access activities of their choice, with or without a volunteer friend.
