Our Diamond ladies have been meeting up for years benefitting from a good old natter and a nutritious lunch.
We ask them to provide a £2.50 contribution, but this barely covers the room hire and lunch, let alone activities.
Women do the bulk of emotional labour as well as jobs in the past. This is their time to enjoy their retirement.
We would like people in the community to contribute towards a programme of activities which will see them enjoy crafts, talks by experts in their field and improve their community connections.
We keep on learning at every age and it’s good to get together and increase wellbeing.
If we reach 50% of our target, Wigan Council has agreed to match it with £598.
Please help us with anything you can. £1, £5, £10 – every little helps!
