KIND George Jackson has made making friends his job.

The 90-year-old has volunteered at Gosport Voluntary Action’s Befriending Service for 10 years, first as a visitor and then as a befriender, calling people to talk.

IT'S FOR YOU! George Jackson

IT'S FOR YOU! George Jackson

So his fellow volunteers at the service wanted to make sure he enjoyed his 90th birthday.

They surprised him with a cake and visit by the Mayor of Gosport, Councillor Richard Dickson along with a certificate of achievement.

George said: ‘I was totally unprepared.

‘Prior to the party, for some reason I had a cup of tea brought to me and all that sort of thing, and I still never twigged.

‘I was overwhelmed, the real friendship shown by everybody.’
