A VITAL Barrow service geared towards helping the elderly community is seeking 'befrienders' to help combat loneliness.

Age UK Barrow and District are looking for volunteers who can spare a few hours each week to chat to one of their clients over the phone.

Service users have found themselves in need of a friendly voice during the pandemic.

For more information, or to get involved, call the service on: 01229 831425.

Alternatively, visit 'Age UK Barrow & District' on Facebook and send a message.
