A lady in Manchester originally contacted us in July 2016 because she wanted somewhere to go on Christmas Day so much last year.
Thankfully, because of the support of people like you, we eventually found someone who knew of an event about 30 minutes away. The lady was excited that she had somewhere to go, and then got the news that an event had been registered much closer to her. She then attended that event, and now goes to regular Friday meetings with the friends that she made on Christmas Day.
This lovely lady rang us after Christmas to thank everyone involved, saying ‘I can’t believe the effort people went to to look after me. Never again will I have to dread Christmas and now I have a regular Friday club to look forward to.’
