The club also provides practical help, with two of its members volunteering to hold events.
Re-engage arranges a monthly gathering for elderly people who are isolated from family and friends.
This gives them an opportunity to meet people and provides something to look forward to.
Volunteer hosts provide the teas, and volunteer drivers collect the attendees and bring them to the host's home.
