Landmark Birthday for popular centre September 3, 2008
Alive & Kicking Celebrate 20th Birthday. Members and staff at the popular Alive & Kicking project have raised their glasses to celebrate the group's 20th anniversary.
What started as a lunch club with social activities for the elderly and disabled in 1988 has prospered into thriving centre for up to 300 members.
The project, based in Red Road, has grown to enjoy a city-wide reputation for activities, along with vital services such as bereavement counselling and welfare benefits. To mark the landmark birthday, a champagne reception was held and the project's hugely popular concert part group, the Red Road Young 'Uns, took to the stage to entertain guests.
And to round off the special day, members put on their dancing shoes for a birthday dance.
