More Companionship Cafes planned for Morrisons Elland

Following the success of the first Companionship Cafe on 10 May at Morrisons Elland, a further 4 dates have been scheduled.

Elland-based home care company Home Instead has partnered with Morrisons supermarket to start running a monthly companionship cafe for older or lonely people, looking to get out and make new friends.

The first event held on Tuesday 10 May from 10am to 11.30 in the in-store cafe in Morrisons supermarket was well attended with people from Elland, Halifax and Brighouse enjoying some good conversation, a raffle with prizes and a short but demanding trivia quiz, all in a friendly atmosphere with plenty of free tea and coffee and of course biscuits!

The next Companionship Café will be held on Tuesday 14th June from 10am-11:30am and more dates are planned for July, August and September.

Everyone is welcome whether alone, with a friend, family member or a companion and staff from Morrisons and Home Instead will be on hand to make everyone feel comfortable.
