MP celebrates Befriending Week with VASL

To mark Befriending Week we invited our Community Champion volunteers to The Angel Hotel, to mark the fantastic difference they have already made to people’s lives.

We were very fortunate to have our MP Neil O’Brien come along to listen to the volunteers stories and present certificates to them.  Neil has taken an interest in our project from the start as loneliness is a problem that he wants to work towards helping to diminish and we hope that he will continue to take such a keen interest as our project grows.
