It is a social club for adults of working age with physical and other disabilities manned by volunteers. Members meet Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the year.

The Club has its own minibus for outings and door to door transport to meetings and events.[/p][p]The Human Milk Foundation provides donor human milk to sick premature babies in hospital neonatal intensive care units and to mums at home with cancer and other conditions. Much like donated blood, donor milk can be life-saving for tiny babies. The charity was set up to support The Hearts Milk Bank, based at Rothamsted Institute, and aims to scale up to ensure that every baby who could benefit can have equitable access to donor milk. Milk donors are screened in the same way as those who give blood and all donor milk is pasteurised to ensure it is safe. The milk is stored in specialised freezers at the milk bank and delivered by volunteers to hospitals and families at home. The HMF also provides specialist lactation consultant support to families and leads vital research in human milk science.[/p]
