Local Lib Dems fight to keep King George VI Day Centre in Clarence Road Open
Local pensioners have been disappointed by the Council Conservatives decision to not give a grant to keep the King George VI Day Centre open.
These day centres provide a lifeline for elderly people both physically, in ensuring they get the occasional freshly-cooked and well-balanced meal and mentally, in providing a place for social interaction.
Windsor Lib Dems have taken up the challenge to help Louise and her team to keep the Day Centre running:
· Two local pubs have already agreed to keep collection boxes for WOPWA on their counters – more are needed.
· We will help to raise funding from a local charitable foundation.
· We will assist with publicity to increase the membership, there’s room for 100 at lunch (it’s only £10 a year, anyone over 57 can join and “they do the best lunches” according to our friend).
· We will join Louise in asking local people to donate Recyclebank points to WOPWA (Registered Charity No. 203625).
Local camapigner Pat Gare said, “We all get old eventually – please help us to support our local Day Centre.”
