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.
