Matlock Rotary Club Awards a Community Grant to the Limelight Friendship Group

Matlock Rotary Club recently awarded a Community Grant of £300 to the

Limelight Friendship Group, based at the Limetree Business Park, off
Limetree Road, Matlock.

Limelight Friendship Group is for the over 60s in the Matlock area and it
provides refreshments and activities such as board games, crafts,
indoor bowls and visiting speakers. The group aims to encourage
lonely isolated older people to come out of their homes, to make
friends and enjoy a variety of activities for free.

The grant application is for the purchase of exercise equipment for the
group, to pay for visiting speakers, who cover subjects such as
health, scam awareness, hobbies and subjects of interest, and to help
pay for the general costs of running the group, including purchase of
board games and possibly gardening tools.

Currently around 20 elderly people attend the group once a fortnight.
The Limelight Friendship Group also works with Age UK.

Further details of the Matlock Rotary Club’s Community Grant scheme can be
found on the club’s web site or by ringing Peter Wigglesworth on
Matlock 56259
