Working to help combat loneliness and isolation in older people.
Loneliness and social isolation are harmful to our health. Research shows that lacking social connections is as damaging to our health as smoking cigarettes.
This is why for the past 16 years Taste for Adventure has been working with the elderly from two villages closest to its centre which is based at Credenhill, Hereford.
What started as an idea back in 1999 with just a handful of people from both villages has now grown to over 35 people a week.
As our involvement grew even more successful, we expanded our association with them and over the years we have enjoyed time together on day trips to the seaside, vineyards and shows, our centre based activities, apart from lunches and breakfasts have included themed days for Valentines, St Georges day, Get me out of here I’m over 60!, BBQ garden party, and much more. Christmas is high on our agenda and we always enjoy a Christmas lunch together at a local restaurant.
We have also gone further afield and enjoyed weekends away to London, Newquay and beautiful Northumberland to visit the Duchess of Northumberland’s gardens and tree house.
All of this would not be possible without the help of funding given to us by Trusts and Charities, the Royal British Legion, local business and donations given by the public.
If you feel inspired by the work we do to help the elderly and would like to make a donation then you can do so on this website.
