A monthly Sunday lunch for people aged 65+ experiencing loneliness and social isolation


Who We Are

We are a team of passionate volunteers who care deeply about building friendships and promoting inclusion through Sunday lunch, in a caring and welcoming environment for all those living alone and experiencing loneliness in our local community.

What We Do

Run entirely by volunteers, on the 1st Sunday of the month we provide a tasty two-course lunch to people aged 65 and over who are feeling lonely or socially isolated in Bishop’s Stortford,  Sawbridgeworth and the surrounding areas. We make sure to theme some of our lunches for seasonal activities!


The Impact It's Having

The Welbeloved Club gives members the opportunity to make friends and leave the house on what can be the loneliest day of the week to enjoy lunch. Friendships have no age limit, and through our penpal schemes many have the chance to make friends with people of all ages. If you know someone who may be feeling lonely, we’d love them to join us!


Become a Guest

The Welbeloved Club is proud to welcome new members every month. Joining us is free, and a two-course lunch with unlimited refreshments will be charged at £10 per person.
