Charity is brewing up to help elderly

The Royal Voluntary Service is holding a Great Brew Break event in Corby to raise funds for older people in the town.

It is being held at Swan Gardens, School Place, off Gainsborough Road, from 2pm until 4.30pm tomorrow (Friday). The event is open to children of all ages and there is no admission charge. Attractions include a teddy bears’ picnic.

Royal Voluntary Service manager for Northamptonshire Rebecca Calcott said: “We believe in the power of a good cup of tea and a chat, especially for older people who may be isolated and lonely, not seeing anyone from one day to the next.”
