From loneliness to happiness at Claremont Lunch Club

Guests and volunteers enjoying Claremont Lunch Club

As volunteers prepare to mark the third anniversary of Claremont Lunch Club, people from the local area are continuing to reap the benefits of their work.

Jean came along on the recommendation of another guest after losing her best friend. Now she’s happy to be part of the friendly and pleasant group of lunch clubbers at the Claremont Centre where she knows she can enjoy the company of others and start to make new friends. As a single lady with no living relatives, she knows that life would have been very lonely without her introduction to the lunch club.

"She really enjoyed herself and is really looking forward to coming back again," said Eveline, one of the lunch club volunteers.
