Party celebrates helpers' efforts
2:00pm Friday 30th August 2013 in News
MORE than 60 befriending clients and volunteers turned out for a summer party at Bourton House Garden.
Hosted by the Moretonbased Cotswold Volunteers North, the event was one of three held for its volunteers every year as a ‘thank you’ for their hard work.
Despite the bad weather, guests enjoyed a garden tour and afternoon tea at the popular attraction near Moreton.
Befriending Services Manager Kirsty Holder said: “It is so vital for our clients that they have regular outings and social events. People who are isolated at home can suffer from anxiety, depression and ill-health.
“These vibrant social occasions, generously donated on this occasion by Bourton House, and staffed by our wonderful volunteers, provide a lively fun environment for our clients.
“Bourton House Gardens are so beautiful and uplifting. Thank you to everyone for joining in and taking part.”
The charity was recently awarded £225,000 from a Big Lottery grant which it will share with two other brefriending charities.
