ABOUT US

Laugh Live Love promotes the physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual welfare of older people on the Fylde.

We do this by providing a weekly luncheon club from St Paul’s Church Hall in Fairhaven.  Additionally, we deliver hot three course meals twice a week to members who are unable to attend the club and do a weekly fish and chip drop off. 

We hold activities for social interaction and creative sessions to help encourage the learning of new skills and rekindling old hobbies.

There are weekly Coffee and Computer sessions to teach older people how to use digital devices and have a tablet loaning service with one-to-one support.

Volunteers make weekly contact with members through our Chatterbox project, a telephone befriending service.

We have an adapted wheelchair accessible vehicle to transport people in wheelchairs and members unable to drive or access public transport.
