A FRIENDSHIP group is hosting a get-together to tackle lonelines. Oddfellows Bradford is holding an open night and bingo on Thursday, September 19 at Woodbottom Social Club, Baildon Bridge, at 7.30pm. The event is part of Friendship Month, in September.

Emma Marshall, development and social co-ordinator for Bradford Oddfellows, said: “Studies have proved how regular company is essential to living a happier life. Most of us make friends through work, family or education. As we age and life changes, we have less access to these everyday social opportunities, which can contribute towards social isolation in a huge way. The Oddfellows is here to offer friendship and support.”
