A Message from Jacquie Tichauer (October 2018)

This month marks the 18th anniversary of the start of the Lunch Club and the community is indebted to Alan Burke who inaugurated it. We have been a separate charity in our own right since 2010 “Ralli Hall Lunch and Social Club (charity no. 1142922)” and financially independent, having to raise some £40,000 each year to break even.

On Tuesday 4 December we are holding our Annual Chanukah party and once again this year we are being entertained by the wonderful cast of Top Hats.

Winter is now upon us and we are happy to welcome new members who are enjoying our lunches and activities and of course, the company.

Three of our stalwart volunteers who have been helping for many years are now looking to cut down on the days they come. We are therefore looking for some new volunteers to take their place on a Tuesday morning from 9.30 am to 2.00pm. If you feel able to join us please contact me on 01273 739999 or email me on We are sure that our volunteers get as much enjoyment and fulfilment as do our members. You do not have to commit to coming every week as we would like to build up a group of regular standby volunteers. Hope to hear from you.

JACS joined us on the 1st November for an anniversary celebration which was enjoyed by all and it is lovely working together with them once every month.

On a sad note, we held a minute’s silence on Tuesday for the victims of the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooting, which was a shock to everyone. We are hoping 2019 will be a more peaceful year for all.

Sadly, our long-term dedicated Tai Chi instructor Adele Percival passed away. She was a wonderful lady and will be very sadly missed by all of us at the Ralli Hall Lunch and Social Club. We wish all her family long life.

We are delighted that some of the ladies who play bridge are now coming to the Lunch Club to help make up games for our members. We really appreciate their participation.

Jacquie 🙂
