Raising Money for Monday Club…


On Friday Evening, Eve, Jane and Judith sold drinks and snacks at an end of term event at Eckington Youth Centre. It was a great evening with fairground rides, live music and entertainment and was well attended by the local community, including Monday Club members and volunteers.

Thinking of Others by Stephen

I love coming to Monday Club and I like to play pool, but one of my best friends is ill at the moment in Hospital and I miss him. I like all kinds of sport, pool is my favourite. I have been to see Michael in hospital every week since April and I tell the rest of the group how he is. I have been to his house and speak to him on the telephone.

I like going on the Turkey & Tinsel holidays and i’m looking forward to this year. I enjoy Christmas carols and mince pies with my friends.

We wish Mick well and hope to see him back at the club soon!!

My new found friends…by Alan

I’m Alan and I moved to Eckington 6 months ago and joined the club. I was told about Monday Club by my social worker. When I arrived I felt welcome and I knew a few people from the day centre. One of the first things I got involved with was the Save Our Youth Centre protest and visited the County Offices in Matlock and took part in a protest in Chesterfield. Hopefully we have managed to save our centre!!

I take part in all of the activities and enjoy them all. I’m really looking forward to going on the Monday Club holiday very soon.
