Run by Contact the Elderly, these are afternoon gatherings for small groups of older people aged 75+ who are often dealing with loneliness and social isolation.
Once a month, normally on a Sunday afternoon, guests are collected from their home by a Volunteer Driver and taken to a Volunteer Host's home, where they join a small group for refreshments, talk and companionship. The group is warmly welcomed by a different host each month, but the charity's drivers and guests remain the same. Over the months and years, acquaintances turn into friends and loneliness is replaced by companionship. If you know someone who could benefit, please get in touch,
