The South Gloucestershire Disability Equality Network, in conjunction with other voluntary organisations, is hosting the event in Chipping Sodbury Town Hall.

Workers such as delivery drivers, shop staff and hairdressers are among those who meet lonely elderly people in particular and want to be confident in trying to help them.

Organisers also hope local businesses will want to get involved by sending members of staff who could be trained to help their customers.

The event takes place on Tuesday, March 20, with registration from 6pm head of a 6.30pm start.

Booking is essential and can be done by visiting bit.ly/lonelySG or searching SGDEN on Eventbrite.
