King’s Lynn Trinity Rotary Club donates to West Norfolk Befriending to fund the organisation and volunteers
A Rotary club has donated money to a befriending service which will help to fund crucial volunteers.
Trinity Rotary Club in Lynn has donated £500 to West Norfolk Befriending.
West Norfolk Befriending’s objectives are to improve the physical and mental well-being of older people and the charity relies on volunteers to keep the organization running.
Pippa May, chief executive of West Norfolk Befriending, said: “Our aim is to reduce isolation, enhance the safety and quality of life, maintain independence, and thereby improve the physical and mental well-being of older people.
“This will help us fund the training of volunteer befrienders and the running of this local organization.”
Some of Trinity’s aims are to support younger people – as well as older – and to help the environment.
John Hodson, Trinity President, said: “The club wants to help local charities with their fundraising. We know that they have more difficulty getting donations when many people are having to be careful with the cost of living.”
