Linking Lives Befriending Service
Gillingham Link has got a new name: we are now called Gillingham Linking Lives. This will help to stop any confusion with another local service (car link) that provides transport for people going to hospital and other places.
Currently we have 15 clients actually receiving visits and a few on the waiting list.
From time to time, we hold social events for the Linking Lives clients and those who are on our waiting list. As an example, we've an afternoon tea with guest speakers giving an illustrated talk about their bicycle trips to different parts of the world such as Sicily and Romania where they meet and work with many interesting people.
Befriending lonely people is a brilliant thing to do and very rewarding. It is very beneficial for anyone who is lonely and it also benefits the volunteer who makes a new friend. We always need more befrienders and at the moment have a few on the waiting list who are lonely now and desperately wanting someone to talk to and share things with.
If you think this might be for you, download a volunteer pack to see what is involved or you can phone 07437 312166 and ask Alison for more information.
