May’s chosen charity is Contact the Elderly.
This is a national, but small scale, charity that uses volunteers to organise, host, and transport local elderly people to regular tea parties for fun and friendship.
A friend of my wife is a volunteer driver for her local branch. A very worthwhile cause, and it also demonstrates that I don’t just choose animal charities!
From their website:
Welcome to contact the elderly
a lifeline of friendship
We organise regular Sunday afternoon tea parties for people over 75, who live with little or no social support.
The afternoons are full of fun and laughter and make a
real difference to the lives of our guests.
