New Companionship Centre for Age UK Calderdale & Kirklees

Age UK Calderdale & Kirklees have recently undergone a programme of modernization for the Day Care Centres. We have re-located the Park Road Day Centre to Rimani House on Hall Street Halifax and re-launched the facility as a Companionship Centre. Funding was sought to help finance the move and modernization, Trafalgar Lodge 971 made a petition to Provincial Grand Masters Fund for assistance to refit the Kitchen at Rimani House.

The Worshipful Master Martin Ibberson and Peter Worth Charity Steward were delighted to be able to present a cheque for £1000 To Age UK Calderdale & Kirklees and the kitchen now provides healthy meals which meet all requirements and has been awarded 5 stars from the local environmental health department.

The Centre is open 5 days per week. With future plans to open 7 day a week, access to the centre can be gained by private arrangement with Age UK Calderdale & Kirklees on 01422 252040 or by assessment via Gateway to Care 01422 393000.
