No.1 Befriending Agency’s ‘Cup of Friendship’ Event to Brighten Blue Monday at Buchanan Galleries

15 January @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Free

No.1 Befriending Agency, a Glasgow-based social enterprise dedicated to fostering connections and companionship among seniors, is aiming to combat the winter blues with its “Cup of Friendship” event at Buchanan Galleries on Monday 15th January, otherwise known as Blue Monday.

The event is designed to create a warm and inviting space for individuals aged 65 and above to forge connections and engage in a radiant spectrum of meaningful conversations over cups of tea. Two sessions are scheduled throughout the day from 10am to 12 noon, and 1pm to 3pm.

The morning session promises an hour of creativity with arts and crafts. Participants can enjoy the delightful blend of tea and conversation while immersing themselves in a hands-on arts and crafts experience. Volunteers at No.1 Befriending Agency will also be on hand for friendly chats, playing board games and spending time in everyone’s company.

Utilising resources from the Moving Image Archive, the afternoon session will feature captivating content revolving around retail, shopping and groceries on the big screen. Attendees will have the chance to reminisce and spark conversations inspired by shared memories presented in the clips. One-to-one conversations with No.1 Befriending Agency volunteers will also be available, providing a personalised and enjoyable experience.

No.1 Befriending Agency is an award-winning social enterprise set up in Glasgow in 2016 with the aim of reducing loneliness in older people through free befriending services. These services involve trained volunteers engaging with socially isolated members of the community and spending quality time with them to hear their stories, along with providing regular activities, outings, and social events, creating opportunities for people to connect with the wider community.
