Cream Tea boxes went down a treat with befriendees

To celebrate World Mental Health Day on Saturday 10 October, we organised for Ruth’s Cakeaway to deliver cream tea boxes with a hand written card to 80 people who receive our befriending support.

Our befriender volunteers made a total of 50 calls to their befriendees over the 9th and 10th of October, to mark World Mental Health Day and join in with Mind’s Do One Thing campaign. 

Volunteer Coordinator, Donna, said:

We have arranged this treat as a reminder that someone is always there and thinking of you in these uncertain times.

We are really pleased to have received many messages of thanks from people who received a box, with one person saying:

I want to say a massive thank you for the delivery of the scone, cream and jam on World Mental Health Day. I was really taken back and even had a little happy tear. It was perfect timing as I’m really struggling right now. It was such a lovely thought. Thank you. It certainly made me smile.

Another person said:

Thank you for the wonderful surprise of cream tea and all the support you have given me. It has made a great difference to my life and alleviated any anxiety and stress I may have had. I’ve enjoyed my chats on all kinds of different topics. It’s amazing how time flies when you have a conversation with someone who has the same kind of interests. Thank you. You’re all doing a wonderful job during these very different times.
