Our Co-Chairs, Lorna Sinclair and Hilary Smith want to send a big thank you to all our community Befrienders for all your support, before, during and ongoing in these unsettling times. Your work is very much appreciated.
The community befriending project is part of North Berwick Coastal Community Connections. From their web presence: “working to relieve social isolation for adults over 18 in the North Berwick Coastal area. Normally we do this by arranging gatherings and chumming our clients to local activities to build up their sense of local connection and their social confidence.

Our volunteer Connectors normally help with gatherings and chum our clients We are currently recruiting more telephone or writing Connectors in the North Berwick Coastal Area to maintain contact with isolated clients.”
