PramaLIFE Poole (PLP), provides helpful services (many run previously by Age Concern Poole) for many of the elderly residents in Poole.
One of the very popular services PLP provides is the Buss Bus! A new minibus driven by volunteer drivers and available for hire for short trips or day trips. Hire costs are very reasonable and priority is always given to local people with most need, although the Buss can also be hired when available by other groups. Call us on 01202 666195 for details.
We are looking for Minibus Drivers so if you have a clean driving Licence and D1 category and have any spare time, we would love to hear from you. More information here.
PLP also run a range of “Pop-Ins” - social clubs for older people which are located in various churches, halls and homes in the district. These clubs provide a safe, friendly environment where members can socialise and take part in a number of fun activities.
The amazing staff (comprised mainly of volunteers) organise a variety of different events including parties, lunches and bingo sessions for the residents on a weekly basis. Tea and biscuits are always available in abundance and they also organise a Christmas lunch every year to celebrate the festive season.
The pop-ins provide a perfect setting for residents to catch up with one another and discuss memories, and PLP’s team are always around to lend a helpful hand should they be needed.
Each session requires just a small entry fee; however, there are no membership or subscription charges required for any of the pop-ins as they are not intended to be a club. As a result, members do not face any form of obligation and they may attend as many or as few pop-ins as they wish.
