BHABeFriend is a project of BHA (Berwickshire Housing Association) designed to offer companionship to older people in Berwickshire. It has expanded and gone from strength to strength over the last year, thanks to the Big Lottery Fund. One of the things that BHABeFriend does particularly well is group befriending sessions where people who use the service can get to know one another. One of the groups is now meeting in Coldstream Community Centre. The ladies (and one gentleman) of the group have been making decoupage boxes. Being very competitive, they asked a volunteer to judge which was best and awarded a prize to the winner. They have also been led in a seated exercise session by Lynn Young. Lynn showed everyone a few exercises that they could do at home and they thoroughly enjoyed the chance to do something active together. In the summer the group is planning to have a day trip, with, possibly, another later in the year. If you, or anyone you know, is over 55 and might be interested in befriending on a one to one basis, or as part of our group, you can contact Terri or Kerry on 01361 884000 or BeFriend@bhagroup.org.uk.
