It is on May 4 between 9.30am and 1.30pm at The Conoco Rooms, Louth Library.

Service Manager Gareth Walters said: “We’ve all pulled together to support this event, my Service Assistant Emily Smith has done a great job organising some really fun activities such as Punch and Judy and splat the rat and we have got plenty of our amazing volunteers on hand making tea and cakes so will really be a fun-filled family atmosphere!

“Plus, after the event our team is planning to walk 75 miles across East Lindsey to raise money for WRVS Lincolnshire. The money we raise will help us provide vital support to older people. We’d love everyone to hold a Great Brew Break of their own to raise money so we can reach more older people.”

WRVS supports over 100,000 older people each month stay independent in their own homes for longer with tailor-made solutions.

Through its army of 40,000 volunteers, the charity runs services such as Good Neighbours (Befriending), Meals-on-Wheels and Books-on-Wheels that alleviate loneliness and help older people.

A charity that receives no direct government funding, it also provides practical support for older people who have been in hospital through its On-ward Befriending and Home from Hospital services.
