VOLUNTEERS are wanted to befriend older people in Gosport.

The Gosport Befriending Service is looking for more neighbours to match with older people in the area.

These are people who want to live independently in their own homes, but who feel a little lonely or isolated.

Befrienders are asked to make a regular weekly visit to an older person.

You might go for a walk, help write a letter or just have a chat over a cup of tea.

The service has flexible hours to suit volunteers.

For more information about how you can help, contact the Gosport Volunteer Centre on (023) 9258 8347 or email gosportvb@gva.org.uk.
