Yes, Stones End is run by Age UK and the manager is Andrew Rogers. The phone number is 020 7358 4052. They do organise transport to & from the centre. Surprised that your mother has to pay for it, though.
Have you tried Blackfriars Settlement
on Great Suffolk Street
? I know some ladies that enjoy going there. Pretty sure that they don't pay, and they also organise trips out.
