The wider aim is to use rugby league (RL) memories, anecdotes, stories and personal experiences of past players and RL enthusiasts to engage older people in the community to meet, find new and old friends, become less isolated, more confident and have a low cost 2 course lunch (£3.99) in a friendly atmosphere in a central venue.
Its further aims are to providing a regular opportunity for people in the local community to come together to share a meal and memories and look at memorabilia, listening to some fascinating stories.
The next lunch club has the theme of ‘Wembley 1987’ with the principle guest being the referee that day; John Holdsworth. Several of the UK based players have been invited also, with Wilf George confirming his attendance.
The highlights of the game will be shown on screen.
