Contact the Elderly-Maidenhead Need YOUR Help!

Contact the Elderly Maidenhead has been running for 15 years taking out 6-8 local elderly people once a month, 12 months a year, to tea parties. Their guests are aged from 75 into the 100’s, and local family hosts welcome the group into their homes for the tea party. This regular monthly outing makes a huge difference to the life of an isolated person and gives them something to look forward to. Often this is the only social outing in their lives.

Their group needs a group Co-ordinator/driver for a few hours a month and more drivers to drive the elderly guests one Sunday afternoon a month. Can you make a difference to elderly people in your community and enjoy a very happy Sunday afternoon?
