Liverpool FC's Red Neighbours team were delighted to welcome back more than 60 local pensioners from the Anfield area to enjoy the first Monday Club in over 19 months.
The popular Monday Club, which has been on hold as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, is a monthly initiative that aims to tackle social isolation by bringing together elderly locals and care home residents to enjoy an afternoon of socialising.
Hosted in the Reds Lounge at Anfield, Monday Club provides an opportunity for like-minded people to participate in fun activities such as bingo, a raffle and musical entertainment.
Support for the elderly community is one of the four main areas of focus for Red Neighbours, alongside memorable experiences for young people, food poverty and education, and encouraging a physically active community.
Brenda Richards from Monday Club said: “Having not been together since March 2020, it was fantastic to have the club back up and running again. Sadly, we’ve lost a few members during this time and they’ll be dearly missed.
“Those who came to Anfield were delighted to see friends once more and we even had a few new faces too! You could feel the excitement in the room.”
