Chris said: "We have a very active social calendar hear at Age Concern Crosby. We have two fundraising events a year. We run luncheon clubs and we run annual holidays.

"We also take some of our service users on day trips in our minibus several times a year and we always have a Christmas lunch in each of our clubs prior to Christmas. If anyone knows a friend or relative who would like to attend our weekly clubs they will be made very welcome. Just contact our office or send their details through our website.

"Each time we hold these fundraisers, we always gets lots of support from the community of Crosby and further afield.

"While the fundraising is vital for us to continue the work we do here in Crosby, our community events also give us the chance to raise awareness about the work that we do.

"We are currently appealing for volunteers. Anyone who can spare a few hours a week to help would be made most welcome. Just give us a call and we can give you more information."
