TVA is absolutely delighted that the Oxted Runners had chosen the Tandridge Befriending Scheme as a beneficiary of the Titsey Trail 10k event. This sizeable donation will make a big difference to the Befriending  scheme. We are thrilled that a donation will also be made next year too.

The Tandridge Befriending Scheme currently supports over 140 lonely and isolated people in Tandridge; providing volunteer befrienders to pop in for a chat, or take their friend out once a week. It makes a huge difference to some of the most vulnerable in our communities, many of whom do not have a conversation with anyone else for the rest of the week.

Befriending Coordinator, Lucy Darlow, promotes and supports the scheme, matching friends that can often be sustained over some years. The Oxted Runners Titsey Trail 10k funds enable the befriending scheme to reach more people and make a positive difference to their lives.
