Connect Hackney

Join Mind for exciting activities every month

Silver Saturday meets on the last Saturday of every month for live music, line dancing, games and lunch.

Silver Saturdays is a social club, bringing older people together for fun and creative activities at our Wellbeing Centre. Once a month people from all over Hackney come together and enjoy a delicious home-made lunch and exciting activities which we alternate on a regular basis – such as mindfulness, bingo, line-dancing and quizzes.

Silver Saturday aims to address an unmet need in mental health services for the over 50s community, by reducing feelings of isolation and increasing resilience, confidence and self-esteem.

Mind run the last Saturday of every month – except for December as this would fall too close to Christmas so they are holding it on 21 December.

On 30 November Mind are having some animals come to visit including a chinchilla and lizard and on the 21st we’re having a big Christmas party with live music and lots of exciting games, and it would be great to see some new faces!

“I so much appreciate your efforts to provide a welcoming and inclusive monthly event. Weekends are particularly bleak for those of us on our own and I really look forward coming to Homerton Row.”

Participants are invited to discuss what kind of activities they would like to see at the next session. They are encouraged to influence and shape the service into what they would find most beneficial, to ensure that Silver Saturday continues to serve the needs of its clients.

Participants are welcome to join us for the whole day, or they can come along for a particular activity. Carers are also welcome to come along to accompany individuals.
