BS3 Community

With the help of volunteers, this community club organises a weekly lunch and quiz for pensioners at risk of social isolation and loneliness in a local restaurant, whose owner charges food at cost price only. For some, this is the only social engagement they have all week and is very special and valuable. An 81 yr old said “I don’t think you will ever know the difference that staff and volunteers made to me during the pandemic. I felt scared and alone but their calls, care and laughs, flowers, Sunday lunches and jigsaws made me feel positive and connected.”
