Connect at Christmas: Tell us how you are going to beat loneliness this festive season

Throughout this festive season, the Press and Journal is shining a light on the loneliness which affects so many across the north and north-east.

We want as many readers as possible to join our Connect at Christmas campaign to help make a difference – now and for years to come.

Could you do something to help an isolated person in your community? Pick up a neighbour’s shopping, clear a drive of snow, call a forgotten aunt or pop a Christmas card through a stranger’s door? There are no end of ways to make a connection
