The Richmond Carers Centre Culture Club is a programme of short trips out to places of interest within easy striking distance of the borough. Trips usually last approximately three hours, though there are often opportunities to stay longer if you wish. Culture Club places are booked on a first come first serve basis and we will contact you to confirm your place. Richmond Carers Centre relies on donations to keep the cost of Culture Club trips as affordable as possible so that carers usually pay a reduced amount towards trips. The Culture Club is open to all adult carers registered with Richmond Carers Centre.
