Day trip to bring some sunshine to older people

Llandudno

Older people living in North Staffordshire will benefit from a day on the beautiful beach at Llandudno.

The Young at Heart project will be putting on a coach trip for around 50 people on 19th September, with volunteers on hand to collect people from their homes, provide support while out and about, and help make the day go smoothly. 

The trip will be a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a day out with friends and meet new people. Many of those going on the trip are isolated, and some haven’t left the area for years due to health problems. The excursion will be a great way to see somewhere new, take the fresh sea air and enjoy an ice cream on the beach in the company of others.

There will also be the chance to take part in an activity while there, such as afternoon tea, a tea dance or fish-and-chip supper. People will also be able to explore the pretty seaside town, stroll along the promenade or enjoy the stalls on the pier.

With volunteers on hand to offer support when needed, it promises to be an enjoyable experience for all.

The trip is just one of many activities provided by the Young at Heart project, which offers social activities for older people in Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire. The project runs lunch clubs, coffee mornings and other activities to enable older people to get out and about, meet new people and take part in activities that boost their health and wellbeing, self-esteem and confidence.
