Chair’s chosen charity helps to improve lives of older people in Lichfield district


The chair of Lichfield District Council is highlighting the work of a charity which helps older people maintain their independence and live more fulfilled lives.

Councillor Ann Hughes is supporting MHA Communities South Staffordshire during her term of office and recently attended a special lunch and social group that it organised for people with dementia at the Old Mining College, Burntwood.

Councillor Hughes said: “MHA’s motto is ‘Live later life well’ and it provides invaluable support for elderly people, especially those with dementia, their families and their carers.

“It organises day trips and there are regular activities on every weekday in both Burntwood and Lichfield – including breakfast crafts at the Old Mining College and chair-based exercise at Lichfield Methodist Church on Monday mornings, laughter and lunch in Curborough Community Centre on Wednesdays, and the Fandango dance group in Chase Terrace Scout Hut on a Friday.”

MHA is holding a fundraising Communi-tea Party on Tuesday 21 May at Chasetown Methodist Church from 1pm to 3pm. To book a place call 01543 674257. 

Anyone seeking more details, or who would like to make a donation can contact MHA Communities South Staffordshire on the same telephone number or email southstaffs@mha.org.uk
