Day centre’s birthday bash

Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin staff and volunteers recently celebrated 30 years since its Much Wenlock Day Centre first opened its doors. Located at Priory Hall in Much Wenlock, it is just one of 39 centres operating across Shropshire, providing vital support for older people.
To mark the occasion there was an afternoon tea and a presentation to one of the long-serving volunteers, Barbara Corfield. Barbara has been involved from the very first day it opened, following in the footsteps of her mother who helped set up the day centre.
Age UK’s CE Heather Osborne says, “We’re delighted to be celebrating the 30th birthday of Much Wenlock Day Centre and want to thank Barbara for her support and tremendous commitment over the years. Our volunteers play an extremely important role helping us deliver services to local older people and we are so grateful to volunteers like Barbara who show such dedication.”
