Mansfield MP highlights success of weekly “tea and cake” event at the Harold Harvey Hall
and live on Freeview channel 276
All senior citizens across Mansfield are invited to enjoy a drink, a chat and an obligatory slice of cake! The event runs every week on a Tuesday between 1pm and 3pm and has proven to be immensely popular so far.
The organiser, Jigsaw Homecare, are optimistic that in the future they’ll be able to offer more events throughout the week too and they encourage Mansfield’s senior citizens to get involved and see what they have to offer.
They are also looking for more volunteers who’d be interested in baking cakes or joining in with the afternoon itself, and with many seasonal activities such as Halloween and Christmas coming up, there will be plenty of other ways for people to get involved too.
As the County Councillor for the Mansfield North district, which covers Mattersey Court, Ben was pleased to donate some of his grant funding towards this event.
Jigsaw Homecare have also had a very kind donation from ‘The Red’ in Mansfield who have provided beautiful 3-course Christmas meals on Boxing Day which are distributed to the most vulnerable elderly service users they support.
Commenting, Ben Bradley said: “It’s fantastic to hear that the new tea and coffee afternoon at Harold Harvey Hall has received so much interest since it began in October, well done to the team for organising it all and working so hard to make it a success!
“I want to invite senior citizens across our town to head over, grab a slice of cake, a cup of tea and find out more about what’s on offer there, and if anyone has a free hour or two on a Tuesday afternoon to pop in and volunteer their time, I know those organising the event will be massively grateful.”
