Update from Croydon Contacts – November 2020
Because of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we are still unable to run any face to face activities for the foreseeable future. We realise how isolated many people are at the moment and we are doing our best to our members in other ways, such as arranging online quizzes and discos – we are holding a Halloween Disco, plus two quizzes in November and December, and an online Christmas Disco. We are also planning further activities for the New Year, and we continue to communicate with our individual members by phone, and by sending out quizzes, newsletters and other activities.
We are disappointed that we cannot continue our normal programme at the moment. We will resume face to face activities as soon as it is possible and safe to do so. In the meantime, the information on this website about our previous activities will give you a flavour of what we were doing till March 2020!
To our members – please keep in contact with us for more information or just for a chat, by calling or texting us on the Croydon Contacts phone – 07999 866680, or by sending us a WhatsApp message. Or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you haven’t heard of us before, the information below explains who we are and what we do – we welcome enquiries about membership.
With our very best wishes
Trustees of Croydon Contacts – Christine, Frank, Jon, Ken, Laura and Lizzie
Welcome to Croydon Contacts – who are we and what do we do?
Croydon Contacts is a small registered charity that supports adults with learning disabilities and/or special needs in Croydon, to enjoy social activities in their local community. To achieve this, we run various events for members, staffed by a core group of volunteers and trustees and supported by carers and families.
Our events up to the Covid 19 lockdown in March 2020 included weekly Drama Classes; monthly Bowling, Cinema & Lunch clubs; Summer day trips to local museums & parks; visiting local pantomimes & shows. These have been suspended but we are running on-line activities mentioned above
We’d love you to come and join us!
We always need more support to maintain and develop our programme, and to bring in new ideas, so are keen to hear from you if you can help. Without the support of dedicated volunteers and trustees we cannot carry on our vital work.
See you soon,
