Age UK are offering a great service to anyone who would like a hot meal delivering in lower Teesdale and Darlington.  Simply call 01325 741 942 between 8:30am and 4pm.

Their volunteers are giving up their easter weekend and are there for anyone who wants a meal or simply would like to chat. The befriending service is available on  0300 30 20 100.  If you are feeling isolated, lonely and missing the family visits which usually take place during the holiday weekend, please do reach out.

In Gainford we have a list of local volunteers who are all happy to have a chat, and sometimes a chat can help if you are feeling lonely or isolated.

The numbers for the local volunteers are here.
