Farnley: 20th anniversary joy for lifeline organisation

An organisation offering lifeline services and activities for older people in Farnley, New Farnley and Moor Top has celebrated its 20th anniversary.

Members of Neighbourhood Action in Farnley, New Farnley and Moor Top enjoyed a party at New Farnley Community Centre with approximately 100 members, staff and volunteers attending. 

The manager, Karen Buckland, gave a brief overview of the charity’s achievements over the years.

This was followed by a short speech by the Lord Lieutenant of Leeds, Stanley Hardy, who together cut the excellent cake, which had been made by the students of Thomas Danby College as part of Intergenerational Month. 

In addition to the food, there was a luxury raffle with prizes kindly donated by local shops,  and a few local organisations had stalls promoting their services and goods.

From social and exercise groups to trips and outings, the organisation offers a range of services and activities to older people over 60 years old who live in the areas of Farnley, New Farnley & Moor Top to combat social isolation and to promote an independent and active life.
