The Mayor visits Age Concern Epsom & Ewell Afternoon Tea

Age Concern said a big THANK YOU to the Mayor Cllr John Beckett and Mayoress for supporting their monthly Sunday Tea event at Stoneleigh Methodist Church.

The Sunday Teas are held once a month and are really beneficial to the residents who attend. Not only does it allows them to talk to others of their age but it especially helps if they may be feeling lonely or isolated. It provides them with a relaxed and entertaining atmosphere, whilst enjoying tea, cake, biscuits and sandwiches.

The event was sponsored by The Family Building Society  who presented a cheque to Age Concern for £1000.The residents were entertained by members of the Epsom Singers who sung many old favourites.

On a personal note after losing my father I signed my mum up with Age Concern and can not speak more highly of them. My mum is nearly 90 and still likes her independence. Age Concern helps her with hospital transport service, she has a weekly visit from a befriender for a chat and of course she loves the Sunday teas. So thank you Age Concern.
