Befrienders to veterans wanted

KIERAN HOWARD: Child-proof your home by getting rid of the furniture

Have your say

AN appeal has been made for volunteers to befriend military veterans.

Charity Alabaré is looking for people who can help ex-servicemen and women to adapt to independent living and civilian life more easily as a part of their Befriending Scheme for Veterans.

Befrienders will receive formal training and must be able to commit to meet up with a veteran on a regular but flexible basis.

The charity is looking for volunteers throughout Fareham and Gosport.

To find out more about the scheme contact Dawn Foster on 01329 235122.
