A taste of our activities
Doncare currently offers the following social groups:
Lunch Groups: a range of hotels, RSLs and cafes provide a different destination for each outing. Favourites are revisited and we are always on the lookout for new spots within Manningham and surrounding suburbs. There are our lunch groups which meet fortnightly (Mondays, Wednesdays and Tuesdays).
Light Walking Group: this group offers fresh air and exercise in many of the beautiful parks around Manningham. No one races, the group walk at a slower pace while enjoying a chat, followed by morning tea at a nearby café (fortnightly on Tuesdays).
Café Perks: this group enjoys afternoon tea in cafes both in Manningham and neighbouring areas, some are faithful favourites and others are a new adventure. We are always looking for new cafes to try. A great chance to chat, find a new friend and have a delightful treat (fortnightly on Thursdays).
Carramar Friendship Group: this group meets weekly at a local church hall. Activities can include guest speakers or entertainers, quizzes and group crosswords or craft (weekly on Tuesdays).
Happy Wanderers: this groups visits a variety of places of interest including parks, museums, galleries, shopping centres and more, depending on what is happening in and around the area. This group involves more walking than many of our groups (fortnightly on Tuesdays).
Chinese Walking Group: talk while you walk; a light walking group for Cantonese and Mandarin speaking seniors followed by morning tea or lunch (weekly on Wednesdays in school terms).
Saturday Lunch Group: this group visits a variety of hotels, RSLs and cafes for fun, food and friendship, some close by and a few further away (weekly on Saturdays).
Movie Group: a full day of fun. Commencing with morning tea, onto the movie and then lunch and a chance to discuss the movie (usually monthly on a Friday).
Special Outings: for those activities that don’t fit within our regular group activities. From time to time, we may offer an additional outing to somewhere a bit different. These visits are offered to members who share an interest in the place to be visited. Some of the outings offered in the past have included flower farms, fruit orchards, art exhibitions and musical entertainment.
