With social isolation soaring during the Pandemic, particularly among elderly people, the return of an award-winning Cuppa Club was much needed.
Cuppa Club, a partnership between The Ridings Shopping Centre and Age UK Wakefield District does more than just provide tea and a space. But it provides a touchpoint for people to join together to share conversation, experiences and build friendships.
From April, Twice a month Age UK and The Ridings play host to events to help combat loneliness, with the popular Cuppa Club which is based in The Ridings Centre, Cuppa Club happens on the 2nd Thursday and Age UKâ€™s Time for tea on the 4th Thursday of each month, both 10am – 12 noon, giving comfort and regular structure to elderly people across the district.
The centre has accessible toilets, entrances and a Shopmobility scheme – a free wheelchair and scooter loan.
