What our members say

I was fully employed, looking after a large family and doing a lot of charity work. I suddenly retired to care for my hubby, kids were grown and then the pandemic crept upon the world like a thief in the night. Having friends around the world can make a difference to share ideas and help you to continue an exciting journey of life.
