What people say about us

Sandra and the team are lovely and very helpful. We go to many different places with the Friendship Group and have quizes and singalongs. The tea and cakes always go down well and we always feel very welcome.

Friendship Group User

I love going on the shopping bus, meeting my friends and making new ones. I don’t know what I would do without the wonderful volunteers who help me get on the bus and get my shopping.

Supported Shopping Service User

I really enjoy helping people and the drivers and team are really friendly. Our clients often thank us and really appreciate us and the service.
