John and Clive
John visits his Link friend, Clive every week, and takes him out to the pub to catch up.
One week last year, John had to bring his kids along to his visit, and Clive enjoyed having them there so much that they come every week now as well!
“His face lights up seeing the kids (he prefers seeing them to seeing me!) and he often comments on how great it is to go out with them as he doesn't get to see his own grandchildren or great grandchildren as often as he’d like.” It was his birthday recently, and John’s kids surprised Clive with some cards and a present.
We love John and Clive’s volunteering story, which really shows how each volunteer and Link friend relationship is unique.
