Corton House Launches Community Hot Spot

Corton House is thrilled to receive funding from Norfolk Community Foundation's Surviving Winter Fund which has enabled us to run our Community Hot Spot at the Jubilee Community Centre in Lakenham every Tuesday throughout December and January.

All local people over the age of 65 are welcome to attend. We particularly welcome those facing cost of living challenges, struggling to afford food or to heat their homes, or those who are feeling lonely and isolated. We feel that we can offer what Corton House Ltd does best - encouraging social opportunities, enriching activities, freshly cooked meals - for a positive impact on the wider community of older people in need with whom we do not currently engage. During each session there is the opportunity for visitors to take part in a different ‘ice breaker’ activity to encourage socialising and meeting new people – for example, gentle exercises, games and crafts. At most sessions there is an advice hub from an alternating rota of charity partners, with printed information and volunteers signposting visitors to relevant organisations for further assistance. Each week we provide a free simple hot meal - cooked in the kitchens at Corton House - as well as Screenshot 2022 12 29 110038snacks and drinks.  

Our tenants at Brakendon Close have found this a great chance to feel connected to the local community through doing good, thanks to all who have joined us to serve soup so far!
