I know they’d do anything they could to help me. I don’t feel old when I come here; its very young at heart and we’re always learning and laughing…” Day Centre Client “We have fun here and we’ve all got a story to tell but it is a sort of lifeline really. It’s important to be a part of something when you retire. The classes keep my brain ticking and it’s lovely when you walk in and the friendly faces are there waiting for you.” Day Centre Client In many cases, those who attend our Wellbeing Services are those emigrants who came to London in the 1950’s and 60’s, whom the London Irish Centre helped on their arrival. Now in another phase of their lives, the Centre continues to offer them support, community and vital social opportunities.
