The new lunch club aims to help combat loneliness and isolation.

One Your Home Care client, said: “The event was fantastic and I loved seeing the staff, especially the ones I’ve not seen or met before.

“I would like to attend the next one and meet my new friend who sat next to me.

“It really did help me get out of the house and be around people again.”

Martin Heartfield, REAL marketing and business engagement consultant, was at the event, held at REAL’s Real Alternative Provision School, Woodhouse Road, Mansfield.

He said: “We were delighted to host some of Your Home Care’s clients for the first in what we hope will be a series of events that make a difference.”
