The Nicky Alliance Day Centre in Manchester is on a recruitment drive for members.
The Crumpsall centre, which provides social and care activities for 200 older people, is holding three Succot open days for non-members to sample activities including Tai Chi, computer classes, art , keep fit and live entertainment.
Chief executive Michelle Wiseman is looking to increase membership by 10 per cent to keep the centre financially strong.
"Like any organisation, it is important that we attract new members," she said. "We have so much to offer we just want everyone to know about it.
