Welcome to COATS Crowthorne. We are a local charity set up in 1966 to provide a Centre to meet and socialise for the local Senior community. The Centre provides companionship, healthy lunches, teas, stimulating activities, entertainment and services for older people in the local community in addition to providing respite for their carers. Find out more.
The COATS Centre is welcoming new Visitors every week and we still have some spare capacity on most days. Why not give us a try? Almost every new Visitor we get says the same thing “I should have done this years ago”.
Please call Bernie on 01344 773464 to arrange a visit.
FANTASTIC DONATION FROM EBGC
February 14, 2023
COATS receive fantastic donation from the East Berkshire Golf Club.
The Captains of East Berkshire Golf Club nominated COATS as their 2022 Charity and throughout the year ran a number of events such as quizzes, raffles, cake sales and a dedicated Charity Weekend. On Friday 10th February, the Club Captain, Heather Amor, and the Ladies Captain, Amanda Bancroft, thanked the Club members and supporters for their generosity throughout the year and presented a cheque for £23,645 to Peter Hutterli, the COATS Chairman.
One of the uses for this generous donation will be to help with the cost of heating the COATS Centre through the winter.
We normally open Monday to Thursday from 9am to 4pm. and Friday 9am to 2:30pm (Closed on Public Holidays) and provide:
Fresh home cooked 2 or 3 course lunch at minimal cost. (£6). See Sample Menus.
Afternoon activities: including bowls, skittles, bingo, quizzes and keep fit. See Sample Activities.
Entertainers, including keyboard players, speakers, choirs and slide shows.
If you live in the Crowthorne area, we also provide a Minibus service from your front door to the Centre for just £3 per day.
