Club for over 50s reports huge increase in members

A city charity’s popular club scheme has more than quadrupled its membership numbers in a matter of months.

Age UK Sheffield’s The Club is a membership scheme which offers the over 50s opportunities to become more active, meet new people, enjoy excursions and learn and enhance computer skills.

The club dropped its annual fee to increase access to as many over 50s as possible and the move has seen numbers swell from 140 at the start of this year to nearly 600 by April.
