Havering Museum’s popular Variety Club has secured the backing of one of Romford’s top accountancy practices for a second year.

The club, which meets either on a Wednesday or Thursday on a fortnightly basis, offers local people over 50 the chance to make new friends, learn new skills, listen to talks and try new activities.

As part of its partnership with the museum, Clemence Hoar Cummings, of Como Street, has agreed to help fund a new schedule of events.

David Belbin, managing partner, visited the Variety Club to learn more about what the group has to offer.

Ellen Owen, director of Havering Museum, High Street, said: “Working with David and his colleagues at Clemence Hoar Cummings has enabled us to continue to offer a wide range of activities through the Variety Club, which benefit the older people of the borough.”

She said the club had changed the lives of so many people.
