a poem by our volunteer .....

Maureen is an award winning author, BBC Scriptwriter and Playwright who has kindly penned this for us.

Would you like to learn about Age Concern?

What exactly is it? - We arrange a visit

Shiela, Jackie, Chris and Rose, and many others, I suppose

Have always sought to give support

To those on their own, maybe can't leave home

To those who are lonely, but not those only,

Some may like a natter - it doesn't matter

Your visitor - he or she - will have a chat and make you tea

So don't be shy, just apply

By phone or letter - things will get better.

And if you volunteer it's perfectly clear

You'll get your satisfaction from the interaction.

And in the end you'll have made a friend.
