Diane was referred to Gig Buddies from Age UK.  




She lives alone, is registered blind and uses a wheelchair. 

She said she felt too vulnerable to go out and about on her own. 


Diane‚Äôs family live far away so Diane finds it very difficult to get out. 




Gig Buddies introduced Diane to Maggie. 



Diane was invited to her housing association Christmas party.

But was nervous to go alone so she asked Maggie to go with her.

At the party Diane met other local residents, made new friends and found out about monthly get together that she now joins in with. 



Maggie and Diane share a love of gardening and have visited garden centres and plan to go to open gardens.
