A MOSQUE is planning to open a luncheon club for pensioners in East London’s Brick Lane.
The Jamme Masjid in Spitalfields is one of 16 organisations running or planning to open luncheon clubs for the over 60s in the East End. It is to run Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, serving Halal meals.
Bidwan Goswami from Brick Lane Jamme Masjid Trust said: “We hope it will play a role in bringing older people in the community together and give them somewhere to socialise.”
Another East End lunch club opening this week is being run by Bow Community Association.
