A charity is appealing for volunteers to come forward and help to launch tea parties for elderly people in Lynn.

The plea has been made by Contact the Elderly, who are planning to establish a regular social event for people aged 75 and over.

They’re looking for people to spare a few hours to take people to and from the parties or host them themselves.

Katy Szita, the organisation’s development officer for East Anglia, said: “For those living on their own, and who can sometimes feel lonely or isolated, the tea parties are a great way to get out of the house, enjoy a social occasion and make friends.”
