Concern is not enough—befriend the lonely
The core work of the SVP is to visit and befriend people in need, providing practical and moral support through this one-to-one contact. Locally, members visit people in their own homes, in residential/care homes or in hospital. As well as personal contact, practical and material assistance may be given including financial support on occasions. Lord, we remember all those who are lonely and we pray that we may be able to help them find friendship.
The Annual Appeal will be held next weekend—13th/14th September.
