One Sunday afternoon a month, our volunteer drivers enjoy taking their older guests to a volunteer host's home where they join a small group for tea, talk and companionship.
The group is warmly welcomed by a different host each month, but the drivers remain the same and the groups are kept small so that everyone can join in easily and get to know each other properly.
It's a simple idea, but one that can make a big difference. Our friendship groups represent the perfect opportunity to get out of the house, make new friends within the local community, and generally brighten up a weekend.
Guests are not expected to host any of the tea parties and the service is free.
