Making a Match Club
Do you want to meet new friends and get out more? If you are age 50+ and live in LS16 or LS17* we may be able to help!
This club is free-to-join and is for people who are independent, looking for interests and activities to get involved with in their local area and meet like-minded people. Come and join small or larger friendship groups to share activities such as meals out, cinema, games, walks and even walking sports.
We have a lot of information about local and city-wide activities you may find of interest, some of which may be low cost or even free. We help people to work out the practicalities of meeting up and support them to build and maintain new friendships.
Let us know what you are interested in!
*Please note that some events are open to people from both postcode areas, some are postcode-specific and some are open to people from a wider area. Please note that transport will not usually be provided.
Free ‘Walking Football’ taster sessions – open to anyone in LS17 and the surrounding area – come along, have some fun and try something new, no experience necessary! Delivered in conjunction with Leeds United Foundation! Just turn up or contact Janet (details below) to find out more. We’d love to see you there!
