March Virtual Social Clubs Programme - Movies, Music & Memories to a St Patrick's Day Party, there's something for everyone

It feels like there's a little bit of hope, the days are longer, the weather is warmer and slowly but surely we're on our way to seeing everyones faces and smiles in person again.

For now, join us at lots of different Virtual Social Clubs throughout March. From celebrating everything in the North with Movies, Music and Memories through to Origami Fun with the brilliant Islamic Societies from Manchester University and Manchester Metropolitan University. 

Also this month, we have a number of phone-in 'Cozy Clubs'. These are perfect for anyone who doesn't feel confident getting onto Zoom just yet, but neighbours can still have a good natter about their lives and the world.

If you are yet to join us and would like to sign up as a volunteer, head to www.manchestercares.org.uk/get-involved.
