Lichfield Ladies “befriends” and helps local charity group Friends 2 Friends.
The Lichfield Ladies group held its cheque presentation of £300 with Lichfield’s Friends 2 Friends on the 27th of March 2015.
Friends 2 Friends are a social group for adults with learning difficulties, the group came under risk of closure due to an end of their three year agreement with Lichfield District Council that will not be renewed.
This worthwhile local charity provides a meeting place for more than 40 members giving them an opportunity to socialise, learn new skills and gain confidence in daily life.
Sue Kershaw, Lichfield Ladies Chair, added “It is so important that we support our local charities, especially when they provide such an important role in our community”
The group costs around £13,000 per year to run and members also do their own fun-raising.
Alsion Wellon added, “We support the members with a view to them doing things independently
This group is vital, without it the members would be lonely and excluded”
