Although the weather in the North East England wasn’t as sunny this Sunday as many other places, there was much laughter and smiles when the first group in Burradon & Dudley launched.
Sheila Ryder, North East Development Officer says: “I think the ladies lives were definitely brightened up on Sunday at our party. The photo is testament to how much they enjoyed themselves. Sorry about the poor quality of the photo but I was laughing too and it was difficult to keep the camera steady!”
This is the second group Sheila, who joined the charity last year, has launched this year and she is building up some great connections in the area. If you know someone who is interested in volunteer to help brighten the lives of lonely older people, then please email Sheila, or call her on 01434 672110.
