Once a month, normally on a Sunday afternoon, each older guest is collected from their home by a volunteer driver and taken to a volunteer host’s home. They join a small group for tea, talk and companionship. The group is warmly welcomed by a different host each month, but the drivers and older guests remain the same, which means over the months and years acquaintances turn into friends and loneliness is replaced by companionship. Hosts provide a warm welcome and a simple afternoon tea lasting between two to three hours for six to nine older guests and their drivers (three to five drivers). Hosts often involve family and friends and two or three generations join in. We request one or two tea parties a year, but more should you wish.
