Fancy a Brew - cuppa and company at The Gate
Older people living in Cardiff are attending a series of workshops called The Brew.
WPD Team Support Josh Pamplin joined in the fun at the Christmas Brew workshops for tea and mince pies.
We have funded the workshops at The Gate – a community arts centre in the heart of Cardiff. The workshops are aimed at helping older people tackle the subjects of loneliness and isolation which can seriously impact on their health and wellbeing.
The workshops which always start with a cup of tea, are referred to as The Brew and they provide a variety of activities including line dancing, pottery classes, bingo and a special Christmas show called Sherlock Holmes and a Festive case of Mistaken Identity.
Matt Meads, The Gate’s Centre Director said “The Brew sessions never fail to bring a smile to the faces of all involved. We’re grateful to WPD for providing this funding.
“As a team, we are absolutely thrilled to welcome lots of people through our doors and spend time with friends, old and new, as we discover the arts and creativity together”.
WPD Corporate Communications Officer Karen Welch said: “The Gate is doing great work and creating interesting experiences for older people living in the local area.
“So far the workshops have been very successful and are helping us to reach out to some of our vulnerable customers, by informing them about our free Priority Services Register – which is designed to provide extra help in a power cut.”
