Cuppa to combat loneliness

Charity Contact the Elderly has opened its first group in Bishopbriggs and is appealing to people who enjoy a cuppa and a cake to get in touch as a volunteer.

The charity organises free monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for those aged 75 and over who live alone.

The charity’s development officer Janice Kerr said: “The time you need to donate is very modest but has an immeasurable impact on our guests who really look forward to the tea parties.
