Brightwells Gostrey Centre (Farnham)

Brightwells Gostrey Social Centre - Wellbeing Volunteer

Brightwells Gostrey has been in the heart of the Farnham community for older people (65+) for over 30 years, providing a warm and friendly place to have a cup of coffee, take part in a group/ activity or start a new hobby.  After having to close our doors for over a year, we are thrilled to have reopened.  The safety of all our clients, volunteers and staff is our absolute priority and so we find ourselves in need of more hands-on deck.  If you would be happy to share your time and enjoy meeting new people, we would love to hear from you.  Activities that are organised by our coordination team can be anything from arts and craft and reading to reminiscing, Passing A Pig (you have read that correctly!), skittles, making and serving refreshments.  If you would like to have an informal chat about becoming a volunteer, please do get in touch with Jess  – thank you.

Mission Statement

Brightwells Gostrey has been in the heart of the community for older people for over 30 years.  We provide a warm and friendly environment for senior citizens to meet. Offering a variety of vital activities and services including freshly cooked meals, daily activities, craft workshops, grandparent and toddler groups, outings and much more. We are proud to bring a sense of belonging, companionship, fun and enjoyment to those in their golden years.

We also provide a Community Meal Service, ensuring those who need it, regularly receive a nutritious freshly cooked meal and pudding. All dishes are prepared from scratch in our kitchen. However, it is far more than just a meal we are delivering.  Our team of volunteers are a friendly face to many, helping to reduce social isolation, something which has become so much more important in the recent months.
