When is six, not six? When it’s in a Covid secure building! So the good news is that here at Hope Trust we can continue to offer the scheduled, reduced capacity, activities that have been running since we re-opened in August. Phew, that’s a relief! Our repetoire of events is limited, but that hasn't stopped people coming along and enjoying our Tuesday Technology Cafe held each week at Maidstone Hall, 127 Maidstone Road, between 10am-12noon, or on Wednesday morning coming to our Tea & Chat session, also between 10am-12noon. We are also back hosting our Tea & Chat on a Thursday morning at the Old Felixstowe Community Association building, in the Margaret White Hall, again between 10-12noon; its great to be serving people in that community once again. Our plan is that, as numbers demand, we will open more Tea & Chat sessions here at Maidstone Hall so that everyone who wants to, can come out and enjoy some company. To join us at any of these events just give us a call on 01394 272592 and book in as numbers are limited - but we've not been full yet! The work of the charity continues, not just hosting events, but meeting people and helping them move from where they are, closer to where they want to be. Please do get in touch, we're here to help.

Welcome to Hope Trust

Welcome to the work of The Hope Trust. We are a local Christian charity serving Felixstowe and the surrounding area, working with people aged 50+. Hope Trust is committed to both the practical and spiritual well being of older people and works to make later life a fulfilling and enjoyable experience. Our major focus is on the relief of loneliness and we seek to encourage people to come out of their homes, into a welcoming and relaxed setting, where they can meet up and chat with others; finding new communities and groups of people to connect with.

I am part of a group that, when not affected by Covid-19, takes services into Residential Homes. I am so pleased that my flute playing helps others to engage with the music/hymns. I also love the positive effect singing has on older people, often provoking happy memories.
