Martin and Philly – Volunteer Telephone Befrienders for Voluntary Services Lewisham
“We decided to do telephone befriending because we wanted to help others during the lockdown. We thought that if everyone does their bit, that would really make a difference.
We have been phoning our new befriendees for a few weeks now, and it has been fun getting to know different local people. At first we thought it might be awkward, but now we’ve go to to know know people it’s easy and enjoyable.
The Voluntary Services Lewisham team are great and always on hand to provide support. We’d encourage anyone who has a spare 20 minutes a week to give it a go!”
