    I feel so privileged to be heading up this fabulous cause. No one should ever be lonely. Being kind and connected with others is innate in almost all of us - we just need to relearn the skill. Sometimes a smile is all it takes. There’s a lot of work to be done - but everyone we speak to wants to be involved – and together, we’ve got this.
