Senior citizens socialise after weeks in isolation

After many weeks isolating during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, groups of older Islanders were treated to invitation-only get togethers at Les Ormes Brasserie.
The afternoons were organised by the Government of Jersey in partnership with Age Concern Jersey, Call and Check, Meals on Wheels and Les Ormes.

Alan Le Pavoux, charity manager of the Bosdet Foundation which runs Les Ormes, said: 'We understand the impact that isolation has had on many Islanders but in many cases this has been harder for the elderly. The Bosdet Foundation wanted to help elderly people socialise in a safe and meaningful way, because we understand that it's vital to their wellbeing.'
