Hove Luncheon Club »
The Hove Luncheon Club provides a healthy and hot three-course meal for isolated older people, once a week as well as offering the chance of weekly social contact and to play games and listen to guest speakers. The Club also provides placements for volunteers, some with learning disabilities, who learn catering skills in the kitchen, setting up, serving and clearing up.
Brighton City Table Tennis Club »
Brighton City Table Tennis Club provides role models to support the personal development of young people, to instil a life-ling love of table tennis and to build a strong community. The Club offers top-class training and coaching sessions twice a week at Brighton Youth Centre. It has teams in the senior British league, the Brighton league and many Club players compete in other competitions and leagues. “Not only do we develop players, we also develop coaches,” says Club founder Tim Holtam. We have helped to subsidise and train eight 16-18-year olds and two over-18s who have now qualified as coaches. These are all young people who left school with little or no qualifications.”
