About Listening Line

 

We have a charity shop called Amaze, in Malvern Link, that supports homeless and disadvantaged individuals. Most days Polly serves in the shop and has got to know a lot of our customers. She noticed that a lot of older people who visit the shop are open and very frank, often saying things like "I'm just coming out to the shops for a bit of company" or "It's nice to come in for a chat"  Seeing that a lot of older people had these concerns and worries from being alone Polly started to phone these people on a regular basis just to check they were ok and Listening Line was born.
