Thank you to our Befrienders


We managed to choose the snowiest day of the year to have our annual Befrienders gathering which was held in Keswick on 18 January with fewer attendees than expected because of the weather.  It was a great opportunity to thank volunteers, share stories, renew friendships and hear how Two’s Company Keswick is growing.

With the large increase in referrals over recent months there has been a waiting list to match scheme members with volunteers, but we have been encouraged to have recently trained another nine new volunteers so the waiting list should soon fall. As referrals continue we are always looking for new volunteers.
