Fundraising News:

The Penrose Club has been selected for the latest round of the Co-op “Local Community Fund”, whereby the Co-op will donate 1% of everything their members spend on own branded products and services to local causes.  The latest round of funding runs from 9 April to 7 October 2017.  If you are a Co-op member, please nominate The Penrose Club as your charity of choice when you purchase Co-op branded products and services.


Our friend and former helper, Peter Marchant completed his 17 day sponsored hike through the mountains of the Himalayas to Everest Base Camp back in April, in aid of the Penrose Club.  We congratulate him on his amazing achievement and thank him for his generous donation.

50th Anniversary Year Celebrations:

The Penrose Club was 50 years old last year, having originally opened its doors in May 1966.  To mark the occasion, the club has held a series of events for members over the last few months.

Thank you to all who attended the Penrose Club’s 50th anniversary Sunday lunch on 19th March at the Runnymede-on-Thames Hotel.  We hope everyone enjoyed it.  A big thank you to Marilyn, Dot and Ray for organizing the event, to our patron Tom O’Connor, to “Crazy Chris” and friends who provided the entertainment and to the Runnymede hotel and staff.   Our new DVD, commissioned to celebrate our 50th year, which promotes the activities of The Penrose Club, was shown for the first time at the lunch.
