Carrickfergus and District Senior Gateway Club was formed over 45 years ago, We meet weekly in the YMCA, Carrickfergus. We presently have a membership of 90+ with a weekly turn out of around 80 members. We have approximately around 15 volunteers and we are very proud to have one of the largest clubs in the province. We have a Management Committee but the 'spade work' is carried out on our Wednesday Night meetings, which are eagerly awaited by our members.
On Wednesday nights we have outings for the members to participate in. We go to Brewyer's Fayre, a well known local restaurant where the members can relax, socialise and have a nice warm drink at no extra cost! The members also enjoy getting involved in Arts and Crafts, Games, Knitting, Karaoke, Pool and Sports and much more! All of these are made available for them very Wednesday night.
Throughout the year we hold numerous competitions, conferences, displays, fundraising events and an elegant Christmas Dinner at the end of the year for everyone to enjoy! It is good to keep everyone on the move to keep the club thriving!
Gateway represents the open gate to all that is good and the right belongs to those with a Learning Disability.
Keep up to date with our club on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube!
