Day Centres - Marlborough
Day Centres are a place to meet, make friends and share a hot meal. They also offer a programme of social and recreational activities such as gentle exercise, quizzes, outside speakers, musical entertainment and trips out. The clubs are registered charities run by a paid organiser and volunteer helpers, supported by a management committee. They are part-funded by the Wiltshire council and supported by Age UK Wiltshire.
