Roy has been a member of the South London Cares community since 2015, when he first got involved in our Love Your Neighbour programme. He was originally matched up with Jack, with whom he enjoyed attending local cricket matches. When Jack moved away, Roy was introduced to Tara (34). The pair continue to enjoy weekly conversations about a variety of topics.
“I really enjoy being involved with South London Cares. Tara is lovely and Jack was a terrific bloke. Having them visiting me has made a lot of difference. It’s something to look forward to, especially when you’re on your own. I find it really nice to think that younger people want to get to know older people who aren’t in their family. “
“I was born and raised in south London and London is indeed my city. I am just glad that South London Cares has given me the opportunity to meet so many wonderful and lovely people, some of whom are living in Streatham like me”
Syed came along to his first South London Cares social club in 2017. Since then, he’s attended more than seventy clubs, including Desert Island Discs, quiz club, dance classes, theatre trips and tea parties.
