Give the gift of friendship

Sharing time is precious – especially in our busy, fast-paced city. But 40% of older people say the TV is their main form of company, and young people are increasingly feeling disconnected too. By donating to North London Cares, you could help make our activities possible so that older and younger Londoners can share time and new experiences.

Posted by Kirsty Shanks

Did you know that Belize is home to one of the biggest barrier reefs in the world?

Neighbours learnt this and much more when volunteer Kristen – who hails from Belize - treated them to an afternoon dedicated to her home country. From trying traditional delicacies, which Kristen had baked herself, to learning about different cultural groups, everyone felt a long way from London and could imagine being in tropical Central America!
