Be A Friend Christmas Lunch
Published on 11 December 2019 02:06 PM
Plymouth Live and Age UK Plymouth put on a wonderful Christmas Lunch, at The New Continental Hotel, after Plymouth Live challenge people to 'be a friend' this Christmas. The event was well attended and thoroughly enjoyed by our elderly guests, and their friends and relatives.
We're hoping this to be the first of many lunches as part of our Lonely in Winter Campaign. Our aim is to raise awareness surrounding loneliness and the effect it has on older people. We would also like to provide people with the opportunity to enjoy some company and a meal together to help them make connections with others in their community. We hope that these events will enable people to grow their social networks and prevent them from being lonely.
