Broadcast on Thursday 13th December 2018. We were joined on the phone by England Cricketer Ryan Sidebottom and Head of Community at TSB, Bola Gibson to talk about Local Charities Day on Friday 14th December. TSB are helping smaller charities to raise their profiles and providing support through their branches up and down the country and throughout December are awarding a number of Local Community Fund grants.
We were also joined on the phone by Chloe Brown from Contact the Elderly, a national charity dedicated to tackling loneliness and social isolation amongst older people by organising monthly tea parties run by volunteers at the weekends. Chloe is particularly looking for more volunteers in the Crowborough area where there is demand to set up a second group.
