Could you join Be A Friend?

A BEFRIENDING scheme which is expanding rapidly urgently needs more volunteers to keep up with demand.

Be A Friend aims to provide social contact for vulnerable adults in the community who have few, if any, family members or friends living nearby.

If you are a good listener and could spare an hour or two once or twice a month to visit someone or to accompany someone to local events the Be A Friend co-ordinator would be pleased to hear from you.

Places are available on the next programme of induction training at the Trinity Centre in Eastfield Road, Louth, on Tuesday evenings from September 20 until October 11.
