Ross-on-Wye Doorstep Coffee Break

Published on 01 February 2021 02:03 PM

Our Companion Line Service offers those who may be lonely or isolated a regular chat on the phone with one of our friendly volunteers.

In December 2020 some of our Ross-on-Wye volunteers were able to meet with their clients for a socially distanced “Doorstep Coffee Break”. 

Equipped with a coffee and warm clothing, the volunteers visited their clients and chatted with them on their doorsteps.  It was a wonderful opportunity to put a face to a voice and to meet in person, in some cases after many months of chatting on the phone. 

Thank you to all our wonderful Companion Line volunteers who are providing such a valuable service.
