Charlton Kings Senior Citizens’ Welfare Committee provides support to the senior citizens of Charlton Kings with the aim of helping them to stay in their own homes and enjoy an improved quality of life. Those without means of transport can request to be put on a list and taken to a supermarket on our minibus with Passenger Assistants on hand to assist with packing and carrying shopping if necessary. This is a popular door-to-door service currently running morning and afternoon shifts on Wednesdays. Brunch Club meets on Thursdays, and ‘Afternoon Tea’ on Monday afternoons. Transport to the clubs can be provided by the minibus, which can take wheelchair passengers too. Occasional special events are arranged, such as a ‘Holiday At Home’ in the summer, and a Christmas Carol Service in December. Transport may be provided for other occasions, such as for local Christmas shows and for outings.
The committee has been supporting Charlton Kings senior citizens for over 60 years.
All of our members, drivers and helpers are volunteers.
