Cuppa cheer with Great Brew Break; VIEWPOINT.

IMAGINE not seeing another person for days on end, only having the TV for company and never having anyone ask 'are you ok?' or 'would you like a cup of tea?'. This is the reality for many older people across Britain.

Please support Royal Voluntary Service's Great Brew Break by inviting your friends, family or colleagues for a cuppa and a chat this week and make a donation so we can help more lonely older people stay independent.

Royal Voluntary Service volunteers provide a vital lifeline for older people across Great Britain, whether that's help after a stay in hospital, a visit to a Royal Voluntary Service community centre or just a simple cuppa and chat at home.

Please visit www. for more information about how to hold a Great Brew Break event and downloadable resources. You can also donate while having your cuppa by texting PS2 BREW42 to 70070. With your help Royal Voluntary Service can reach out to many more isolated older people in your community.
