Make new friends
Our tea parties are free monthly social groups open to people aged 75 and over. They are a chance for a change of scenery and regular afternoons of conversation and laughter with friends of all ages.
You will even be taken there and home again so don’t need to worry about organising travel.
1. Once a month, on a Sunday
A group of about 10-15 people will gather at a volunteer hosts's home.
2. Volunteer drivers
Collect our older guests from their home and take them to their tea party.
3. Guests share tea, cake, companionship
And a change of scene for an afternoon.
4. Time to go
Our volunteer drivers take older guests safely back home and enjoy a bit of one to one company on the drive home before the next tea party.
What a difference it's made to me, being part of a social group again. At first, I was a bit nervous about going but everyone's so friendly and it’s great to have conversations with different people.
I'm not nearly so lonely now. I really love the company. If I had the chance, I would go every day.
