We are really proud to spread the word about an amazing charity organisation we work with Silver Stories. David and Lis Carney-Haworth (OBE) have put huge amounts of energy into this initiative and we support it 100% – Basically it’s all about connecting the generations. School children practice their reading skills to older people who may be lonely, isolated or just enjoy listening to fun story over the telephone – simple, but so beneficially to both parties!

Anyway, I could blither on about this – or I could inform you that Silver Stories now has a royal seal of approval as Her Royal Highness The Duchess Cornwall has just become their patron. Skim popped down to Nanpean primary school to film two keen Silver Stories Readers chatting to a very friendly and personable Camilla last week and reading to her via mobile phone!
