"A cup of tea, when it comes with a friendly ear, is a welcome combination. But it's particularly important to many of the older people we support who may not see anyone but a WRVS volunteer that week. In May, we celebrate our 75th Anniversary and throughout the years, the charity has become renowned for its tea making abilities", WRVS' Verity Haines said.
