As part of our drive to see more activities for older people in the outer west of Newcastle we are creating a new exercise group.

The Gentle Exercise in Walbottle group commences at 1.30 pm Friday 10 November for 5 weeks in Walbottle Village Institute and runs weekly until Friday 8th December. The class is for one hour followed by refreshments and costs £1.50 per session. No booking required just turn up.

It will then recommence in the New Year for another 5 week period and hopefully will continue into the foreseeable future!

If you need more information please ring Frances on 0191 273 7443. Walbottle Village Institute is based at the Green in Walbottle, NE15 8JE.



Search is now partnered with Unity Lottery and is offering a weekly lottery with a top prize of £25,000 per week plus other prizes. The idea is that Unity Lottery combines the prize money from hundreds of charities across the country but lets you specify which local charity benefits from your contribution. So if you pick Search we will take a proportion of the money and you will be entered into a large, nationwide lottery.


If you would like to find out more about helping Search through a lottery go to Unity Lottery http://www.unitylottery.co.uk/search Alternatively you can download a direct debit application form and print it out and send it by freepost.

It's that time of year and our Autumn newsletter is full of news and activities to help you brave the Autumnal winds and get the most out of life. Click to find out more

Following a very generation contribution from Lord Beecham we decided to produce a short 2 minute film to show people the work Search does and how we might be able to help. Lots of older people and their relatives aren't aware of the groups, advice and support available at Search on their own doorsteps. So we hit upon the idea of a video that shows Search through the eyes of someone passing our office on Adelaide Terrace and taking a look inside.
