Fees

The Hong Que day service runs on Monday, Tuesday and Friday with a daily fee. Voluntary donations are welcome and go towards purchasing food and gifts for special occasions such as birthday celebrations. Non-cash donations such as arts and crafts materials are also appreciated, as this enables us to deliver activities to promote physical and cognitive function.

It may be possible to have these daily attendance fees met by your local council. If you are interested in attending Hong Que but are not in receipt of a personal budget for social care, contact your local social services team for an assessment of your care needs.

Hong Que Luncheon

The Luncheon Club runs on Monday, Tuesday and Friday, in order to provide the Hong Que service users with a hot Chinese meal that is freshly cooked on the premises. Lunch is available to all for purchase if pre-booked before 11am on the day.
