Over 75s invited for company and cuppa

Contact the Elderly, the charity solely dedicated to tackling loneliness and isolation among older people, is inviting local residents to join its new group in Kintore and Inverurie and enjoy a few hours of tea, chat and good company.

The charity, with the support of a volunteer network, organises tea parties for small groups of older people, aged 75 and above, who live alone and would appreciate some company on a Sunday afternoon.

Each older guest is collected from their home by a volunteer driver and taken to a volunteer host’s home, where they meet with a small group for tea, chat and friendship. Currently the group in Kintore/ Inverurie area has capacity for a number of new guests to join and the charity is keen to raise awareness of these openings among the local community. Kintore / Inverurie residents, aged 75 and above, who live alone, without the support of family and friends, and who are interested in joining the group can contact Morna O’May, Development Officer on 01786 871264
