More than 200 years of friendship will be celebrated in Sheffield on Tuesday 19 October at an open day hosted by the Oddfellows.
Visitors to Tapton Hall on Shore Lane in Crosspool will be treated to birthday cake and drinks to mark the bicentenary of the fellowship society whose motto is ‘Making friends, helping people’.
The event, organised by the Oddfellows’ Over 50s Friendship Centre, runs from 11am to 3pm with stalls offering plants for sale, book club information, card making, and advice from the University of the Third Age.
The Oddfellows is a not-for-profit social organisation which runs a network of 151 branches across Britain. With a membership of 120,000, it offers a dedicated Citizens’ Advice Bureau phoneline, care information, and financial welfare support such as help with legal aid and funeral costs.
