The Good Morning Service Donegal Befriending Scheme has issued an urgent appeal for volunteers for all areas of Inishowen. 

The Befriending Service matches volunteers with people over 60 years of age who feel isolated, lonely or are housebound for whatever reason.

The volunteer provides companionship, support and a 'friendly face' within a structured befriending framework.
