The 50+ Skills Exchange Club brings people together to socialise and learn new skills. It also supports individuals who are wishing to get back into work or pursue volunteering opportunities in the local community.
Following the success of The 50+ Skills Exchange Club Redhill Pilot, we are thrilled to announce that we will be relaunching The Club at the Harlequin on 1st October, as part of Older Peoples Day. The 50+ Skills Exchange Club already runs successfully in Crawley. There are also plans to launch The Club in Reigate and Horsham in 2016.

The Club meets every Thursday,10.30-12.30 at the West Central Café and St John Ambulance (alternating each week).
So, what has The Club been up to? The Redhill Club has enjoyed a variety of speakers including a First Aid session, Photography Skills and Ping Tsim who talked to members about alternative therapies.
Beta Futures’ Managing Director, Marie Harris, will be embarking upon a 50km trek of the Great Wall of China over 5 days in October 2015. So far Marie has raised over £2800 in aid of this amazing charity and The Club members are hoping to arrange a trip to the hospice in the near future. There are also plans for a Christmas lunch with all of The 50+ Skills Exchange Club members.
Beta Futures is relaunching The Redhill Club to encourage new people to join which will help The Club to grow and develop. This will include a committee, made up of members, being set up to drive and shape The Club.
