Welcome to Brightwells Gostrey
As the government roadmap continues to stay on track, we are delighted to confirm that we will be fully reopening on Tuesday 1 June 2021.
The safety of all our clients, volunteers and staff remains our priority, and we thank you for your patience whilst we have been working extremely hard to shape our future plans. Although we are having to do things differently, we cannot wait to welcome you back – the kettle well be on, coffee brewed, new activity/ relaxation areas set and our staff more than ready! If you would like any further information or to book your place, please call our manager, Jessica on 01252 725330.
In the meantime we are still very much here for the older community of Farnham, continuing to operate our Meal Service. Offering a freshly cooked meal at lunchtime with the option of a frozen meal for the evenings/ weekend, as well as afternoon tea - if you would like further information or know of someone in need, please call Hannah on 01252 727280.
Brightwells Gostrey has been in the heart of the community for older people for over 30 years. We provide a warm and friendly environment for senior citizens to meet. Offering a variety of vital activities and services including door to door transport, freshly cooked meals, daily activities, yoga stretch, craft workshops, grandparent and toddler groups, outings and much more. We are proud to bring a sense of belonging, companionship, fun and enjoyment to those in their golden years
We are a registered charity and regularly fundraise, however, in order for us to continue to offer our services, we are also heavily dependent on the generous donations and funding that we receive. Every single penny goes such a long way and makes a real difference
If you would like to make a donation, please do get in touch
We have a team of dedicated staff, but we also rely on our volunteers to help with the day to day running of the centre. Without them, we simply would not exist.
If you have a spare few hours each week or only on an occasional basis - whatever your interest or skill - from escorting on our minibuses, assisting with our groups, delivering our community meals, helping out in our cafe, kitchen or community garden, we will definitely have a role for you! We are in desperate need and would love to hear from you!
