Rotary Club of Barking launched a new tea party group for people aged 75 and over to provide a regular and vital friendship link every month. The charity aims to relieve the loneliness of isolated older people who live alone, by organising monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for small groups within local communities.

Each older guest is collected from their home by a volunteer driver, and is taken to a volunteer host’s home where they join a small group for tea, chat and companionship.
