Isolated and unwell urged to join in fun at tea party

First published in

A traditional tea party is promised during a fun day at Central Hall on January 13.

The 11am-3pm event at the Keighley community centre will adopt the theme of ‘feeling better together’.

The free-entry event is aimed mostly at older people who may be either isolated or not feeling very well.

People will be able to weave a St Brigid’s cross, a traditional Irish ritual to celebrate the beginning of early spring.

Other activities will include hula hooting and games, and a singer will perform well-known songs from across the decades.

The fun day at Central Hall, in Alice Street, is being organised by Bradford-based group Positive Minds.

Positive Minds was formed in 2009 to raise awareness of depression among people over the age of 50 and bring organisations together to work on the issue.

Positive Minds worked with the NHS to train community champions across the district to spot the signs of depression in later life.
