Tea Parties with Friends


The time I feel most lonely is after six o’clock at night, but when I’ve been out to a Contact tea, then I don't feel lonely at all, just fresh memories of a lovely afternoon out with friends. It's good getting out and meeting people and it's fun for us to get together. It has made such a difference to my life.”
From an elderly guest

“I don't think people realise how lonely and isolated these elderly people feel and just a few hours one Sunday a month can make a huge difference. The gatherings are tremendous fun and I can feel excitement in the air each month when I ring around my members, hosts and my drivers. I find it enjoyable because you can see immediately how, for a small amount of time, you can make a big difference to their lives.”
From a volunteer group coordinator
