The Childcare and Community Centre is a registered charity in Ashton-in-Makerfield which provides opportunities for people of every age

The Diamond Ladies have been meeting up for years for a good old natter and a nutritious lunch.  We ask for a £2.50 contribution but this barely covers the room hire and lunch, let alone the activities planned.

We keep on learning at every age and its good to get together and increase wellbeing.  This is the time for our retired ladies to come together and improve their community connections and increase awareness of the local information and guidance available.

This project meets the aims of Age Well, Wigan Council priority as it increased the ladies connection and aims at increasing fulfillment in their lives.

Recently the ladies undertook a workshop for Digital Imagination and enjoyed making digital portraits of each other on tablets.  This improved confidence as well as having a good giggle.  Other sessions which are welcomed are talks from local providers, bowling and Bingo and the lunch provided is excellent.

Our crowd has raised over £70 million for bright ideas and good causes.
