Penicuik befriending project to be launched

A BEFRIENDING project is being launched for older people in Penicuik.

Bield Housing Association is launching a befriending initiative for older people at Baldwin Court Sheltered Housing Development which will see tenants visited regularly by a volunteer for a chat and a cup of tea, or go out and about and enjoy local activities together.

Project manager Ros Clark said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for our tenants who feel unable to get out on their own.”

The projects are currently looking for volunteers. Anyone interested can find out more by contacting Ros Clark on 01968 678 356.
