Reducing Isolation & Loneliness
Welcome to the FDM Website
Additional 16 Seater Minibus
From September our new 16 seater minibus was visable on the roads of Leeds. The Department of Transport Community Transport Fund provided this in order to increase our capacity and comfort for our members. Below are some of the photos of the handover. This took place at Iveridge Hall, Oulton, Leeds. Thank you to the staff at Iveridge Hall for their kind hospitality.
Details about our upcoming events and latest news can be found here.

Easter 2016 Fundraising
Congratulations to all the winners of the FDM Easter Raffles – The Easter Hamper was won by our Social Club member Ada. The Staff & Patrons of the Hare & Hounds Pub in Rothwell held a “Pick the Wining Number” Raffle with a Giant Easter Egg being won by the Armitage Family from Rothwell. The Rothwell & District Seniors Club held a raffle and the winner of the Giant Easter Egg has kindly donated it, on behalf of the Seniors Club, to Hannah House in Rothwell.
The total amount we have raised was £120 and this money will be used by FDM to continue the work we do in supporting the local communities. The Trustees would like to say a Big Thank You to everyone who supported FDM.
