Helping the elderly

CONTACT the Elderly has vacancies for clients in Henley.

The charity takes isolated people who are aged 75 or over out for Sunday tea once a month to enjoy socialising.Drivers take the guests to a volunteer’s house for the tea party and then join them.

Suzan Hyland, national volunteer support officer for the charity, said: “This regular monthly outing makes a huge difference to the life of an isolated person and gives them something to look forward to. New volunteers are always welcome too.”

The charity, founded by Trevor Lyttleton in 1965, has 530 groups and almost 7,000 volunteers nationwide.For more information, call Mrs Hyland on 0207 420 5811 or email suzan.hyland@ contact-the-elderly.org.uk
