Sophie Clifton-Tucker of Little English (and our Editor!) and Jason Harper of B2 Projects welcomed back the first Seniors Tea for Two event since the first lockdown due to COVID-19.
Seniors Tea for Two is a monthly charitable initiative that welcomes the elderly for an afternoon of tea, coffee, and cakes over music and conversation. Unfortunately, these events have been put on hold for over a year due to the pandemic.
ST42 restarted with a bang last month, hosting a free Big Band night at the Theatre Café, complete with BBQ and drinks. A brilliant time was had by all, and the team look forward to hosting many more.
Sophie commented: “We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to the Paul Riley Big Band, who were nothing short of spectacular; to the Rotary Club for organising the band; to Lawrence of the Theatre Café and his fantastic staff; to the Gibraltar Red Cross for so very kindly sponsoring this event; and to Manolo Ruiz of the Gibraltar Senior Citizens Association for his unwavering support, and without whom ST42 would not have been possible.”
Loneliness amongst our senior citizens is unfortunately a very real issue. The ST42 team urge you to check on your neighbours, elderly friends, and family members. Just one little knock on a door can make more of a difference than we could imagine.
If you know of anyone who could benefit from these social meet-ups, please email [email protected]
The next tea will take place on the 13th July, 2pm, at the Theatre Cafe.
