So here we are, almost exactly 3 months since Mick opened his door and his heart to lonely folk in Wimbledon (or anywhere in fact).
I only followed him because I wanted to know if that Polish chap got his wallet back (headline news early December, remember?). I’m glad to say he did and just look where it led. I met Sally (Good Neighbour Scheme Network) and the rest, as they say, is history
May it continue to grow and fulfill its potential to make a real difference to the lives of people ‘fed up with their own company’.
Many thanks to Rebecca Cresta Photography for the fabulous photo of Joan in her red beret. (Poster girl for MeetUpMondays).
