The Tuesday Club



The Tuesday Club is a fun, friendly and very glamorous social club for people in their 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. Styled as a slightly tongue-in-cheek ‘posh’ 1940s afternoon tea, around 80 guests enjoy a weekly taste of the Ritz in downtown Crawley, along with three cabaret acts, an MC and a pianist, plus cakes, scones and sandwiches served on vintage crockery. “In Crawley, social isolation is particularly acute among working class ladies aged 70 or over ,” says organiser Simon Casson. “It’s a super-special treat for our senior citizens, many of whom are on a low income and often quite isolated. We keep the entry price low and offer free transport to those who are less mobile.” The Tuesday Club received £2,500 from our William Reed Fund and £1,000 from our Warm Homes Healthy People Fund this year to support their work.
