Praise indeed for my “Happy to Share” cards, Age UK have put them on their Facebook page and in just over 24 hours they have had 968 reactions, 101 comments, and 493 shares! Wowzer!

This is what they have shared,

“A former carer is tackling loneliness by planting ‘Happy To Share’ table cards in cafés across Devon.

Caron, from Exmouth, has designed and printed cards for people to put on their tables to encourage others to sit with them and chat.

She said “the inspiration behind the cards was my observation of people sat alone… I just wondered how we could encourage them to share tables and start a conversation.”

What a great and simple way to help tackle loneliness locally. Who would like to see this in their local cafes? 😃”

What is amazing is now many people across the UK are going to copy the idea.My only ask is they credit me with the idea, mention CaronCares and my free but priceless dementia assistance cards
