An Update – Our latest News

Time has passed and so much has happened. The scheme has been in existence for 18 months now.

We still provide one to one visiting as a befriending scheme, but we also host Sunday Lunch on the last Sunday of each month at New Parks Methodist Church – Battersbee Road, a midday arrival for a 12.30 roast dinner. It has been a great success – to book or for more details call Sarah 07465431585 or email

We hosted a fundraising dinner – what a wonderful event that was – 40 people booked and were entertained by a local youth drama group – Curtain Call Youth Drama Group. The youth sang some lovely songs to entertain our guests and there was also time for talking with friends and making new friends – all to support Leicester Western Ward Linking Lives.

We have a fundraising donation page now set up for any sponsors or any help you feel you can give please use the site – (the fee for using this site is minimal so your donation really helps)

In April I will be walking up the Via Ferrata at the Grey Mares Tail, in Scotland to raise funds for the vital work that Leicester Western Ward Linking Lives carries out.

We have 18 people attending Sunday Lunches, 3 active matches and some matches that no longer need a one to one visitor as they are once again going out into the community to activities independently.

We are actively seeking financial support and volunteers to ensure our scheme is a great success and has a long active life span.
