Another lovely quote from Loneliness Awareness Week! “Mothers Ruin was great catch up. Lots of laughter and open talk about the feelings of loneliness when you are home with a new baby. So good to know we are not alone.” Did you take part? Share your stories in the comments.

A round of applause for John! To raise money for us, he is bravely cycling 300km today. He started at 2am this morning and won’t stop until around 6pm! Click below for his @JustGiving page – if you are able to, please #donate.

We've had a fantastic response to Loneliness Awareness Week, with over 800 events taking place across the country. Now it's time to celebrate with the @great_together! #moreincommon #jocox
