North Halifax Star 2016: Contribution to the Older Generation – WINNER ANNOUNCED!

WINNER: Men United at Ovenden Park

Ovenden Park situated just behind Moorside School is more than just the home of Halifax RUFC these days, now it’s also playing a part in tackling the issue of loneliness in older men.

The Men United group is run by volunteers from the rugby club and offers the opportunity to local men to get out of the house and socialise with a few new friends every week on a Wednesday morning.

Good friendships have certainly been formed through Men United and some members having recently experienced problems have expressed their appreciation of the genuine support and help they’ve been given from within the group.

The group currently has about 15 regular attenders but they are always keen to welcome new members.
