Cotswold Friends - combating Loneliness for over 40 years

Cotswold Friends is a local charity,  helping and supporting older and vulnerable people in the North Cotswolds.   Their aim is to combat loneliness and isolation.  Their voluntary services improve health and well-being and support independent living.   Over forty years their services have grown:  they now provide Community Transport,  Befriending,   Carer Respite and Community Activities.   They have over 350 volunteers and their services benefit up to 2,000 older and vulnerable people in the area.

No wonder Stow Royal Ark Mariners were pleased to assist their efforts with a £500 donation at their last meeting of season.  You can read more about this worthy charity via this link.
