A CHARITY is lending its support to the isolated elderly during the coronavirus epidemic.

Age UK Barnsley, based on Queens Road, will be helping elderly people who do not have friends, family or their neighbours to rely on.

The charity will be helping older people get shopping and also providing a listening ear for those who need it.

Anyone who will benefit from the service is asked to email information@ageukbarnsley.org.uk or call Barnsley 776820.

The lines are open 9.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday.
