Sounds good. I love the name LIFE CAFES. If I hadn't become a regular at my local cafe, I would be lost sometimes. Pubs are out of the question because I had to give up alcohol 20 years ago (doesn't mix with my medication) and it just wouldn't be the same if I couldn't have a pint. Can't afford it, anyway. Keep up the good work.

Hi Richard, doncaster 50plus held a Carol Concert at the Mansion House which was a huge success.  regarding the campaign "To End Loneliness" I am in talks with another organisation call "Contact the Elderly" on Thursday and we will be seeing how we can work in Partnership with them regarding this campaign.  One thing we have thought of is "Life Cafes" which will bring people together.

Thanks Marion. How did the programme go? Was the outcome positive? And was there some kind of initiative of benefit to old people alone at Christmas?
