OPAL Activity Packs

One of the aims of OPAL is to provide social opportunities for older people whether it is at a regular weekly club or a drop in session. OPAL also recognises that trying new activities and interests boosts a person’s wellbeing.

During the pandemic many members miss the activities that usually fill their club sessions, whether it be reminiscing a chance to be creative or a chance to learn something new.

In August 2020 we began offering activity packs to OPAL Club members covering subjects such as reading and writing activities, reminiscence, quizzes and puzzles, adult colouring, card making and craft and keeping healthy. These packs are distributed every 2 months and a bonus activity accompanies every pack. Bonus activities have included ‘Knit for OPAL’, a ‘What’s Cooking’ activity and music.

Following the success of the first pack, in October the activities were offered to members from all OPAL services and members feedback on what they have enjoyed and they suggest for activities for the future. We use this information to provide packs with the most appropriate content for each member.

Knit for OPAL

Knit for OPAL is an ongoing activity project. It started as knitting/crocheting squares that are being made up into blankets for use at the clubs. We now have over 30 regular knitters, ranging from beginners to experts, who have contributed not only squares, but scarves, lavender bags and knitted novelties. A new pattern is circulated with the activity bags to the member who enjoy knitting.
