TOWIE star Jess Wright visits Warm and Toasty Club in Colchester
TACKLING loneliness and social isolation is a priority in an ageing population.
According to Age UK, 1.2 million older people in England are “chronically lonely”, and 200,000 older people have not had a conversation with friends or family for a month.
There is one club, based in Colchester, which is working to try and put a dent in these unwelcome statistics.
The Warm and Toasty Club runs a weekly Memory Afternoon – when older people are invited to reminisce and take part in activities together.
The project was formed five years ago by Johnno Casson after he was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome and forced to rethink his life.
He said: “I went from being a senior manager and having loads of friends to being unable to move.
“I spent a year housebound and decided to refocus my attention on a project that wasn’t driven by money, but by something that was doing good in our community.”
TV personality and reality star Jess Wright and her mother Carol hosted a surprise luxury spa day at the club’s Memory Afternoon.
