Celebrating 35 years…

We had a wonderful time on Monday celebrating 35 years of supporting those experiencing loneliness. We could not celebrate without a cake, in true Archway fashion!

Archway’s speakers shared all that had developed over the last three and a half decades and it was amazing to see how much constant, unwavering commitment there has been from all involved (CEO Sheila has been with Archway since almost the very beginning!) At the same time, Archway has adapted to the fast-paced change in response to a shifting landscape of loneliness locally and increased public profile nationally – for example the increased focus on younger adults and an expanded Befriending service.

It was moving to celebrate the impact that Archway has had; bring people together. A big thank you as ever, to our volunteers who pulled together to help make the evening happen.
