The Welbeloved Club was founded in 2017 by Jo Gill, with the aim of providing friendship and company over a tasty two-course hot lunch.
After several years of working in social care, Jo felt there was a gap in the local community that helped alleviate isolation among older people on one of the loneliest days of the week. So, The Welbeloved Club was born.
The Club is named after and pays tribute to Jo’s Great-Grandma Doris Welbeloved who, after a number of strokes, spent the remainder of her living years on her own due to being relocated.
Run by an experienced board of Trustees, The Welbeloved Club welcomes and encourages people who are living on their own and feeling lonely or socially isolated to join. No question is too big or too small, so please get in touch!
