Hapton Luncheon Club Receives £900 Grant from Council's Local Member Grants Scheme

Hapton Luncheon Club has received £900 from the Council's Local Member Grants Scheme to help with the running of the club. Secured by County Councillor Alan Hosker, working with Hapton’s Borough Councillor Jamie McGowan, it will allow the club to continue the work it does to provide a Tuesday lunch for those over the age of 50 years.

Sheila Livesey, who runs the club has expressed her gratitude for the grant after welcoming both Councillors to a lunch this week.

Commenting Sheila said:

"It was great to welcome County Councillor Alan Hosker and Councillor Jamie McGowan this week.
We are all very appreciative as it now means we can go ahead with our summer outing and other social events this year. With costs rising, after buying food, paying the rent and wages we are struggling. So I'd like to say a big thank you from us all.
It's really important that this club can carry on, not only because it’s a good social for those who come, but we look out for one another and keep an eye if someone is missing. We can find out if they are alright and whether they need any help."

Commenting County Councillor Alan Hosker said:

"Sheila and all the team do an amazing job within the community. And that’s what it’s all about. Both Jamie and I really enjoyed visiting and want to say thanks for the warm welcome.
I’m really pleased to have been able to secure this money and so long as I am a Councillor I will continue to do what I can to help the ladies and gentlemen who use this club each week."

For those who are interested in attending the club meets every Tuesday at 12pm at Hapton Methodist Church. A discounted meal is on offer, including a raffle and bingo amongst other games. All over the age of 50 years are welcome.
