Lone­li­ness cam­paign events

Yorkshire Post - - OBITUARIES & APPRECIATIONS -

SO­CIAL AC­TIV­I­TIES are to be hosted along York­shire’s coast in com­ing weeks as part of a cam­paign to tackle lone­li­ness.

Teams from North York­shire County Coun­cil, work­ing on a project to share the con­tri­bu­tion of older peo­ple, had been moved by sto­ries of iso­la­tion.

Launch­ing a Say Hello Coast Cam­paign, which will run through this month, the teams are to host cafe meet­ings, games events and a fam­ily fun day in Scar­bor­ough, Fi­ley and Whitby.

The cam­paign sets out to em­pha­sise how even say­ing hello some­one can make a dif­fer­ence.
