Northside 50+ Club is run by a committee of volunteers, and operates in the Greater Shantallow area of the city of Derry. The Club meets weekly, every Monday morning at a local community centre, and has around 60 people attending (our numbers have gone up again this year). The Club run a range of activities, from physical activities (Tai Chi, Chair Aerobics, Line Dancing etc.) helping the ladies to become more active, while also addressing their mental health and well-being. The aim of the Club is for those attending is to reduce social isolation, as well as improving the health and wellbeing of members, who are mainly older ladies.
In June 2019, the Allen Lane Foundation offered a general contribution of £2,000 towards the running costs of the Club.
