20th Anniversary Celebrations…

During the week commencing 5 November 2018, 16 volunteers from Tollers Solicitors supported Age UK Northamptonshire with their 20th anniversary celebrations at the Venton Centre in Northampton. The centre was opened by Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother on 4th November 1998.

Our volunteers started the day welcoming clients and making drinks. There were a number of morning activities each day, including quizzes and ‘Rummikub’. Lunch was then served in the dining room. Each afternoon there was a wonderful sing-a-long, with numbers such as ‘We’ll Meet Again’ and ‘My Old Man Said Follow The Van’. In the true spirit of the Venton Centre, this was followed in the afternoon by tea and cake.
