Tea Party Host

  • VO65440


Description

One Sunday afternoon a month, throughout the UK, and now in Moray, Contact the Elderly groups meet for tea and companionship. These groups are a lifeline of friendship for isolated older people. You can host a tea party -- providing a warm welcome, a friednly atmosphere and a simple afternoon tea with sandwiches and a few cakes for the oler guests and the volunteers once or twice a year. Hosts need a downstairs toilet, few or no steps and seating for 5 or more older people (many hosts use a mix of hard and soft chairs). Over time, this group of volunteers and older guests get to know each other well and together they spend many Sunday afternoons full of fun and laughter, sharing stories over cake and cups of tea. Hosts in Forres and Elgin would be particulartly helpful just now.

Organisation aims and objectives

Reengage (formerly Contact the Elderly) is a national charity and organises monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for people over 75 who live alone with little or no support from family and friends. One Sunday afternoon a month volunteers use their car to take older members to and from a volunteer host’s home for tea, cake and companionship. Hosts take it in turn to welcome the small group of older people and volunteer drivers into their home for a few hours.
