Louise is a long time member of Chorlton Good Neighbours. She has no close family living nearby and CGN has been a lifeline for her. She has also benefited from having regular visits from a CGN volunteer. Her befriender of many years has now moved away from Manchester, so she was hoping to find someone else who might like to visit her regularly.
At the same time Kay was retiring from her paid employment and was looking for some active volunteering. Kay and Louise met up to discuss how CGN helps those people who would like to have a friendly visitor with those volunteers who are keen to befrienothers. They have now become firm friends
