David’s
Sightline Story

I live alone in a flat and have a number of other health issues. Other than venturing out once a week when someone takes me for my shopping, I am on my own the rest of the time.

I find it very difficult meeting people with similar interests as I can’t go out on my own. Sightline’s telephone befriending service helps as I have little contact with family and can feel very isolated. I talk with a very, very lovely and kind befriender every week.

I’d be lost without my weekly befriending call; speaking with Bill* always brings a smile to my face. He lets me talk without judgement, listens and quite simply makes my day. We talk about lots of things from my love of Formula 1 to the news and everything in between.

I’m so glad the service exists – Bill is a wonderful gentleman.
