All that is needed to establish a CHF project is a few volunteers who are motivated to befriend lonely, elderly people living in a care home. If you are interested in getting involved, you can find out more on the Churches Together website www.churchestogether-marketdrayton.org.uk/chf or Randall Hardy 01952-540970 / randall@amen.org.uk by Mon 7th May.
