Age UK Portsmouth Joining Forces

Age UK Portsmouth run a Breakfast Club for veterans which takes place twice a month on the second Friday and the last Friday of every month from 10:00am to 12:00pm at the Bradbury Centre.

All ex-service personnel are welcome to come along, together with their partners, to socialise with other veterans, take part in the banter and enjoy a great breakfast.

Spaces are limited for the Breakfast Club so you will need to give us a ring in advance to book your place and pre-pay for your breakfast. The cost is £5.00 for a breakfast sandwich and a cup of tea or coffee.

Age UK Portsmouth provides free befriending support and a range of social activities for lonely or isolated military veterans and their dependants in Portsmouth and the surrounding area. The aim is to help older veterans stay independent and have greater confidence by providing friendly social contact, support and companionship.

We're a group of local residents who run, walk, or cycle to help out community projects and older people in Portsmouth.

From hanging curtains for Mr H because he can't manage it on his own, to shovelling a tonne of compost for the Food Growers Group so they can grow vegetables - every GoodGym session is different.
