Notes

Sunday afternoon tea is provided once a month from 3.00pm to 5.00pm by volunteer hosts in their homes.

Volunteer drivers collect older guests, take to (and stay for) the tea party and drop guests home again.

The tea parties are open to socially isolated people over the age of 75 who live alone (applicants who don’t live alone and/or are under the age of 75 are considered on a case by case basis)

Groups currently operate in Bury St Edmunds,  Eye, Ipswich, Stowmarket and Sudbury, and are planned for Woodbridge. We hope to open more groups in other parts of the county, depending on interest from volunteers and guests.
