Generations of storytellers came together, as No Brainer hosted a tea party for a local charity which helps older people stay connected with their local community.
Re-engage (formerly Contact the Elderly), is a charity that works with older people aged 75 and over struggling with loneliness, providing social activities and groups to help them form new friendships and prevent isolation.
A team of 13 staff at No Brainer welcomed the group of six older ladies, along with volunteers, for an afternoon of tea, cake and chat.
The tea party took place just underneath the No Brainer offices at Second City Coffee on Wilderspool Business Park, with refreshments supplied for free by the popular coffee shop.
The group from Re-engage included Jean, who last year celebrated her 100th birthday, as well as 85-year-old Annette who worked as a midwife in Liverpool before she retired.
Over the last 20 years, the number of people in the UK aged over 75 who live alone has risen to 2.2 million. Re-engage is the only charity that is solely committed to tackling loneliness in older people over-75, with the aim of providing means to long-lasting friendship and renewed support networks.
