Elderly en­joy high tea in Whit­ing Bay

The Arran Banner - - News -

One of the two Con­tact the Elderly groups on Ar­ran en­joyed a lovely af­ter­noon tea cour­tesy of Cruick­shanks B&B in Whit­ing Bay last Sun­day.

The ladies all had a lovely time, and thanked hosts Rob and Nanette Cowieson for their hos­pi­tal­ity.

The group’s aim is to help iso­lated older peo­ple by hold­ing an af­ter­noon tea one Sun­day a month with the help of vol­un­teer driv­ers and hosts. Across the UK there are hundreds of groups, more than 130 of them in Scot­land.

The char­ity, which started on the is­land 22 years ago, needs more vol­un­teers to come for­ward as hosts once a year, driv­ers once a month (or re­serve driv­ers) or co­or­di­na­tors to help the ex­ist­ing groups.

Sup­port of­fi­cer Caro­line McGin­lay said: ‘Please get in touch with me if you would like to find out more in­for­ma­tion, would like to re­fer a lonely older per­son or to find out how you can help.’

Any­one who can help can con­tact: caro­line.mcgin­lay@con­tact-the-elderly.org.uk
