Sue Hay has been a volunteer with the Befriending Service for three years. She is also the Chairperson of the Tangent Club, an organisation for ladies with a focus on making friends and supporting local and national causes. A year or so ago, Sue approached us with the idea of organising an event for the members and volunteers of our West Kent Befriending Service. We decided on a Friendship Lunch!

We welcomed over sixty people to the Grove Green Community Hall on Saturday 3rd November. The hall was decorated with bunting and the tables laid with tablecloths, pretty china and a small bunches of flowers.  The Tangent ladies had clearly been busy making soup and savoury scones, followed by a large variety of homemade cakes.

The Lunch was a huge success and a real highlight for members and volunteers alike. A huge thank you to Sue and the Tangent ladies for making it such a special event and putting a smile on our members’ faces!
