Senior’s Afternoon Tea
In November 2013, New Life Revival Church Wales launched a work amongst seniors in the Colwyn Bay area. We have joined with the charity, Contact the Elderly, to form the New Life Revival Church ‘Seniors Afternoon Tea’. This involves organising Sunday afternoon tea parties on a monthly basis for those in the community over 75, who live alone and are isolated, Sunday being the loneliest day of the week for those on their own with little or no social contact or support.
Volunteer drivers ferry the guests to and from the venue, and a number of our people help out at the teas, serving and entertaining. Our hosts do everyone proud with a delicious selection of cakes and sandwiches.
Our group of senior guests are a joy and really look forward to their monthly get-togethers. They are amazed that it costs them nothing and among the comments we have had are: “you make us feel so special”
In addition to the teas, they are visited during the month and contacted by phone on a regular basis.
The work is organised by Trustee/Director Dot Patterson. We see this group as the first of several.
