Young people gain so much from helping those who need help. We can help introduce young people to elderly members of the community. Both young and old benefit from new friendships. We can also offer fun opportunities to work outside on gardening projects to keep Stroud blossoming. Watch this space for news of new projects along the Cotswold Canal's banks.
When spring wakes up the flowers, join Stroud in Bloom's hard work to keep Stroud blossoming. Look out for volunteering opportunities and school projects in the Spring.
Sophie and Hannah visited Zena weekly for several months.
"We always love visiting and it is so lovely to see Zena laughing and smiling with us." Sophie & Hannah
After Zena died, another young person who visited Zena regularly wrote " I was so extremely lucky to have known her and I'm so thankful I did, and I will always have very happy memories of her. Although she was an elderly woman and I'm just a teenage girl, our bond was special and we helped each other in many ways just by having a friend to talk to" Dani
Dani achieved a Kent County Council Try Angle Award for being a Friend and Young Carer to Zena.
