Your Trusted Friend putting a stop to loneliness with a Series of Pop-Up Community Events

17/03/22Your Trusted Friend putting a stop to loneliness with a Series of Pop-Up Community Events

The effects of the Covid-19 lockdowns have given so many an insight into how lonely it can become when cut off from friends and family and out of a normal routine. That’s where Your Trusted Friend comes in.


Cathy Boardman, MD & Co-ordinator of Fun who set up the business 6 years ago, spotted a need for this type of care in her local community of Wrexham.


”Helping out a friend through her illness was a mutually beneficial experience. For a long time I think as a community we have drifted from leaning on one another in fear of being a burden, forgetting that so many of us would love the opportunity to be of assistance.”


 The company has grown and from Wrexham into the other counties of North Wales. The aim with the community events is to reach out further to the smaller towns and villages that may be under-served in these areas.


A well-being service focusing on the companionship, the mental and emotional care for one another. We include befriending, shopping, meal preparation, attending appointments and light tasks that you might ask of a family member or close friend. The all-important drives out with teas and coffees must not be forgotten!


Llanasa Village Hall on the morning of 8th April will be the first in a series of Pop-Up Community Events hosted by Your Trusted Friend wishing to share a taste of their well-being service to the community. 


The free community events start at 11:00am and all are welcome. Other planned events include: Dyserth, Flint and Ffynnongroyw throughout the months of April and May.


Llanasa Village Hall – Friday 8th April

Riverdee Centre Flint – Thursday 21st April

Dyserth Community Hall – Thursday 5th May

Canolfan Ffynnongroyw – Friday 20th May


Your Trusted Friend are grateful for the support from the National Lottery Community Fund that they received in order to reach out to these communities.
