Buddy Up Scheme

A success story from Burnham’s very own buddy up scheme has already been reported back with two participants who were paired up with each other asking how the programmes coordinator did such a good job at matching them. The two ladies have spoken to each other and found they have plenty in common and are now looking forward to their weekly chats to break the boredom they are experiencing. These phone calls consist of talking about their hobbies, their families, books and TV programmes they enjoy but talking to someone new about all of these things opens up so many more conversations for the participants.
