Sunday lunch should be a time of togetherness. The one meal we all look forward to, where we sit down with friends and family for good food and good times. Yet for 1 in 7 older people, it’s the loneliest time of the week.
So The Bisto Together Project and national charity Contact the Elderly (now Re-engage) joined forces to create Spare Chair Sunday. A project that allows people to offer up a spare chair at their Sunday Lunch to an older person who would otherwise be eating alone.
The campaign has been hugely successful and we have recruited thousands of volunteers - we would like to thank each and every person who has kindly offered to volunteer for us. Please continue to share your stories and photos with us!
