Quote of the Day

Most people believe that if you go in and try to micromanage a forest, it is possible to destroy the very thing that makes it a unique and special place. That's just as true of the Net.

New Friendship Group for Older People  
19/04/2011

We are looking for volunteer drivers and hosts to organise our monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties. 

The commitment for volunteer drivers would involve sparing just a few hours each month to drive and accompany older members to a local tea party - whilst enjoying a cuppa and a cake themselves!  Alternatively, the new group also needs volunteer ‘hosts’ willing to welcome the group into their home for afternoon tea just once or twice a year. 

Anyone who can spare a couple of hours one Sunday afternoon a month, enjoys the company of older people, has a driving licence, a car, and a capacity for drinking tea, is eligible!  And for those interested in becoming a host, it would just involve a couple of hours once or twice a year.  It’s not a big commitment, and our volunteers genuinely get as much out of the experience as our older members, so I’m calling for anyone who is interested in giving something back to their community to please get in touch with me as soon as possible.

Julia Rivas.
