Honey is a Welsh learner who lives in Nantlle. Every week she has a phone conversation in Welsh with an 86-year-old woman who lives in Llanfrothen. They have never met, but they benefit mutually from the Welsh conversation.
Age Cymru has a programme to connect volunteers to people who are socially isolated, and Honey is keen to set up something similar connecting Welsh learners with elderly Welsh speakers. The learner would benefit from practising their Welsh and the older person would benefit from a sense of being useful and enjoying a chat with someone, especially if they can’t leave their home over the winter.
Honey is looking for volunteers interested in helping to get the programme off the ground, or to participate when it’s up and running.
