    6 Redlands Road, Reading RG1 5EX

    The Befrienders’ and Carers’ Summer picnic is a thank you event and celebration for individuals who support others in their homes and to get out and about, either as a volunteer befriender or as a carer.

    If you are (or know) a volunteer befriender or a carer you are invited to come along, enjoy a spot of lunch, meet others doing something similar to you and enjoy the beautiful MERL gardens and museum.

    Lunch will be available from 12:30 to 13:30, and from 13:30 to 15:00 cold drinks, cakes, tea and coffee will be available.

    The event is also an opportunity for members of the public to stop by and find out about what local befriending organisations do and how they can get involved with befriending too.

    The event is free, but please register your attendance for catering purposes on Eventbrite at
