We support Contact The Elderly Charity – A lifeline of friendship!  - Stuck at Home Alone!

Choosing a charity for our business to support took time – there are so many.

Whatever we chose our priorities were personal involvement and making a difference in our “home” community. In Contact The Elderly we found the perfect fit.

So what do we do – in short we put smiles on the faces of lonely, isolated, elderly while reconnecting them with the local community.

And we do it by organising monthly Sunday tea parties for elderly guests using a network of volunteer drivers and volunteer tea party hosts.

As the group coordinator for Redditch & Bromsgrove we find lonely elderly guests, volunteer hosts, volunteer drivers and manage the monthly tea parties.

Our guests are able to make new friends – fellow guests, drivers and hosts – and also, subject to our raising funds, enjoy other activities.
