Welcome to our website!
We are your local voluntary neighbourhood group who enjoy making friends with the elderly and disabled and helping them with shopping, doctor and hospital visits, transport to hairdressers, clubs, and outings. We have over 60 local volunteers and help over 150 people in our area. We are a registered charity and rely on donations in order to continue helping as we have done for the last 30 years. If you would like to help us or know someone who would like our help please get in touch either by phone or using the contacts tab above. I look forward to hearing from you.
