Loneliness can be devastating and is a huge issue affecting people all year round with over one million people aged 65 plus describing themselves as always or often feeling lonely. It has an impact on mental and physical health with statistics showing it’s as harmful as smoking 15 cigarettes a day – being lonely not only makes life miserable for older people, it is a threat to a happy and healthy later life.

To raise awareness of this there will be an afternoon 'chinwag' on Thursday 18th June from 2:30 -4pm at Shaftesbury Community Centre, Evans Street, Newport, NP20 5LD.  


Come and have a cup of tea and a chat for free.  There will be a raffle.  All money will go to Age Cymru to support campaigns to combat loneliness.  Hope you can make it.
