BRCT speak at Rover 60 Lunch Club
Blackburn Rovers Community Trust were special guests at the Rover 60 Lunch Club on Thursday to discuss a number of programmes that may be beneficial to members.
The Rover 60 Lunch Club, which is open for people aged 60 and over, is held once a month in the Blues Bar and it costs just five pounds to attend, with a delicious two course meal provided.
Representatives from the Trust explained to those in attendance the work we undertake on a daily basis and different programmes they can join if they wish.
Councillor Maureen Bateston MBE, who is a key organiser of the Rover 60 Lunch Club and a trustee at Blackburn Rovers Community Trust said: “We started with eight people coming along and now we are getting more than 50 people turning up each time.
“They enjoy a two course lunch for a fiver and a lot of them now come a lot earlier because they enjoy the social aspect.
“We do a number of fun activities such as a raffle and play bingo. The club provides an opportunity for people to get to know what is going on in the local area.
“There are now a few Blackburn Rovers supporters and they were talking about what the score will be this weekend at Shrewsbury Town.
“It is really important older people stay active. BRCT runs a number of programmes that will appeal to the majority of those that attend the Rover 60 Lunch Club.”
