Our volunteers – in their own words

My grandmother was a big influence on me when I was small, so I have always loved the company of elderly people. I knew that one day I would do something for the elderly. As a Friends of the Elderly volunteer I have met some really wonderful old people and I hope I they have enjoyed my friendship

Talking to my elderly friend reminds me of how important conversation is. She is genuinely interested in me and my family and my work. I spend about an hour with her, once a week. The age difference means nothing, we are really good friends
