The You Are Not Alone (YANA) club in Littleport celebrated its first birthday in festive style at Christmas.

This weekend it will hold its first meet of the year on Sunday 8 at Littleport Village Hall from 2pm to 4pm.

Kathryn Buck who set up the group said on Littleport Life website: “YANA was formed in November 2015 with the aim of wanting to make a positive impact on the quality of lives of the lonely and isolated in Littleport.

“Our first event was a Christmas Party in the village hall. This was very well attended and appreciated.

“Following a successful funding application, we have since run a monthly Cuppa, Cake and Company Club event.

“We are continuing to enjoy the company of those who came along to the first event, whilst welcome new faces every time.

“Tea, cake and sandwiches are provided, we usually have a quiz, and then there’s an opportunity for a sing-along.

“It’s a very informal event, very supportive, good fun, and a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

“We would like to see our Sunday afternoon gatherings continue to grow in numbers, organise trips, and continue to reach out to other in Littleport who feel isolated and alone, regardless of age.”
