Katrina is an Age UK Bucks befriender to Helen;

"It would be no exaggeration to say that Katrina, my Befriender has extended my life and without her I would be unhappy and solitary.
Becoming friends with one another has extended both our life experiences. We both have said that the age gap is a bonus and we continue to learn from one another, laugh about the different experiences we have had in our lives learning something new about each other is often surprising and interesting and makes our time spent together very special indeed."

We hope that you found this story inspiring. Become a volunteer Befriender like Katrina.
