“Hestia is incredibly grateful to The Elise Pilkington Charitable Trust for the grant of £6950 which allowed us to complete a much-needed refurbishment of the kitchen at our Age Activity Centre in Tooting. The Age Activity Centre provides up to 120 older people each year with activities, exercise groups and other social and learning opportunities. It also provides a healthy, value-for-money meal each day, cooked at the centre. Older people often struggle to cook and shop for themselves and rising food prices mean that it is ever more difficult for them to eat healthily.”






” The previous kitchen had not been refurbished in more than 15 years and was in dire need of repair to allow this important service to continue. By providing lunch and other activities, the Age Activity Centre hopes to help older people live independently in their own homes for longer.”
