Discover a new way of getting your 5 a Day

Friendship group offers new 'recipe' for a happy life

'GET more out of life with our 5 a Day, Every Day' is the latest message from friendly society the Oddfellows in Southport as it reaches out for new recruits this summer.

For more than 2 centuries, the national membership group has been serving up its unique recipe of friendship and support to local members, with the 5 key ingredients of:- regular social events, care and welfare support, travel clubs, discounted offers and historical archive access.

Bonita Hesketh, Secretary of the Oddfellows' Ormskirk and Southport District Branch, said:- "There are many reasons to get involved with our group, but essentially we're about helping people of any age get a bigger kick out of life. We've so much to offer if you take a look.  Meeting new people locally, getting more involved in the community through volunteering and fundraising and, most importantly, having reliable people to turn to in good times and bad, is the bedrock of what we offer. And we'd love for new people to come along, give us a try and see how we could bring that extra bit of happiness into their lives."

The Oddfellows is a non profit mutual that believes in a community bonded by friendship, care and charitable support.  It is 1 of the largest friendship societies in the UK, with 310,000 members and 132 Branches nationally.

"We're here for everyone from all walks of life and we know that by bringing people together, we can achieve so much more than we could alone." added Bonita.

The Oddfellows' Ormskirk and Southport District Branch, which meets every 1st Wednesday of the month, at 10.30am, in The Royal Clifton Hotel, Southport, runs regular free or inexpensive activities for members including:- day trips, walks and coffee mornings.

Bonita said:- "There's something for everyone here, whoever you are, or whatever your personal circumstance. We have welcomed lots of new people, many who have come along on their own, whose lives have changed for the better with the support of friends around them."
