Jo and Tommy Kelly have been befrienders with Eddie’s for almost four years and in this time they have developed a great friendship with Stephen.

Jo and Tommy said: “The befriending scheme allows and encourages people to meet to enjoy common interests and share fun times in a safe, controlled but flexible way.

“We very quickly became friends with Stephen and have a great relationship with him.”

The couple says they have developed a great insight into the work of Eddie’s and have decided to fundraise for them with a Halloween event.
