Borrowbrook Home Link

Published on: Saturday, 6th February 2010

Borrowbrook Home Link - a local charity which helps pensioners to continue living in their own homes - is looking for new sources of funding. The charity has been operating in Ockbrook and Borrowash on a five year budget which lasts until March 2009. A recent annual general meeting heard that more money was needed at a time of changing priorities for national funding streams, with reference given to the money being given to the London 2012 Olympics and the increasing difficulties being experienced in justifying applications to the Big Lottery Fund.

Borrowbrook runs a monthly luncheon club used by up to 90 members who look forward to a roast dinner. Transport is also provided for diners and the charity also provides a telephone advice service for the elderly as well as regular coffee mornings, and group trips.
