In the late evening and at weekends CACFO UK’s centre turns itself over to providing a range of other activities for local people.
There is a Domino Club that meets several evenings each week. It is an alternative social outlet for elderly men and women to get out of their homes and escape social isolation.
Our Sewing Club provides a way for women in particular, though not exclusively, to develop dress making skills and explore fashion design. This has led to CACFO UK host-hosting fashion shows where club members are able to show off their creations on the catwalk.
Our Computer Club for the elderly provides a Computer Zone for locals under Croydon Council’s Go On programme to get more people to share the benefits of being able to go online.
CACFO UK’s Chairman and Secretary are principal organisers of the Thornton Heath Festival which provides a fun-filled day out for our diverse community. About 8,000 people attended this year’s Festival and our Charity is proud to have been both a sponsor of the event, through the donation of our time, and a stall holder.
We hire out the Centre for children’s birthday parties, weddings, etc for local use. If you wish to hire CACFO UK’s hall please complete the application form [add link].
