Having devoted a career to helping others with their mental wellbeing, today it is Shelagh who finds herself in need of social connections. Like many of the guests who will join us this Christmas, if Shelagh wasn’t coming to Sandpipers, she would be spending Christmas on her own.
“Christmas can be lonely time of year, especially for those without children or partners. My favourite part of Christmas at Sandpipers is when the staff and volunteers sit down together and eat Christmas lunch. This companionship is so important for me”.
