Why

Our New Year plan for 2023 is to encourage more exercise and activity amongst our clients, giving everyone a happier and healthier outlook for the year ahead. We are raising funds for physiotherapy equipment for our clients to avail of at the Day Centre.

This is essential for all patrons of Newport Day Centre so that they can remain fit and maintain their mobility. Our physiotherapy schedule is tailored to meet each client’s particular needs/requirements. Our current clients thoroughly enjoy these physiotherapy sessions and look forward to them each week.

Additionally, the Day Centre is hoping to introduce chair yoga classes, so as to further improve the physical and mental health of attending clients. It will be a welcome addition that can be incorporated into our existing physiotherapy sessions.

These amazing facilities and classes will benefit all clients of the Day Centre and further extend the portfolio of vital services on offer for our elderly and vulnerable patrons.

We also have plans to develop the Day Centre buildings to introduce further services in 2023 and beyond.

We thank you for your support and for helping a great local Charity.
