Make a difference today!

Pop round to Marie's and brighten up her day

Our member, Marie, is 90 years old and lives alone in the Newtonabbey area.  Although Marie is supported by her son, he is often away and she finds herself spending a lot of time alone and is beginning to feel isolated and lonely. She is looking for somebody to come over for a wee chat and have some company over a cup of coffee.

Marie went traveling a great deal in her younger days with her husband and would love to share stories of her times away and she also worked in a designer clothes shop. Marie loves  to get to know people and enjoys a good sense of humour! 

She suffers with asthma and COPD but would love to go for a drive or a coffee or even get her nails done. 

Marie would like a visit any day during the afternoon and ideally you would have your own transport as she a wheelchair which she uses when out and about.
