"It's incredible how powerful simple actions can be...taking someone out to Christmas lunch is so easy but can truly change a life". 🧡Amy's lovely words in @YoursMagazine this week.

Hilda was “blissfully happily married” for 67 years. “It’s been so hard here without him, loneliness makes me feel cold to my bones, even with the heating on.” Please help us ensure Hilda is #NotAlone this Christmas Day →

📣 Volunteers needed! 📣

We're looking for a few more volunteers who can drive a guest to and from a Christmas Day event this year! Could you help us?

If so - please email Lou at with your details and car type. Thank you!
