PLEASE SHARE AND HELP US FIND OUR MINIBUS
We are devastated to let you you know that our minibus has been stolen overnight. We are a small charity supporting older adults in the Borough and the loss of our minibus will have a huge impact on us.
This has been reported to the Police. Please keep an eye out for it and either contact us directly on 01689 830055 or let the police know.
Thank you for your help.

UPDATE: Please note that the signage has been removed from the bus so it is plain silver. There is a crease in the bodywork just underneath the rear side windows on the curb side / near side. There is a sign on the back relating to the tail lift. Please can I ask you to share this updated information and make it too hot to handle

Age Concern Orpington & District

Originally registered as a charity in 1966, we have been providing day care for the elderly at the Saxon Centre since 1982. Our vision is to offer a thriving and affordable day care centre, providing valued services to meet the demand of the elderly in the Orpington & District community.

Our team of qualified carers, supported by volunteers, provides day care for elderly clients who may be physically frail and/or have dementia and need a day out of their home environment, or whose carers need a day of respite.

We work hard to provide an interesting and varied programme of activities so that clients can fully enjoy their day at the Saxon Day Centre and we continue to invest to ensure that these services will remain available to the wider community. Overall we strive to promote and encourage the wellbeing of the older members of our community throughout Orpington and the Orpington district to help to make their lives more secure, dignified and enjoyable.
