Donate to support the Fair Close Centre..and make a real difference
Fair Close Centre receives no public funding. We are dependent on fundraising activities and events to keep the Centre and all its services open. Please donate if you can.
We would love it if you could make a donation to support us today!
The Fair Close Centre, operated by Age Concern Newbury & District is an important community facility for West Berkshire and North Hampshire providing an opportunity for older people to meet new people or friends over morning tea and coffee, have a freshly cooked hot lunch or take part in arts and crafts activities, join a knit and natter group, singalong or chair exercises or to play bingo, whist or a boardgame. We also deliver hot lunches to those at home who cannot come to the Centre and we check in with them on a daily basis.
If you are able to make a donation, large or small, it will allow us to continue our work alleviating loneliness and enriching the lives older people in your local community with fun, food and friendship.
