Our Hello Hackney guest is Lyn Ambrose, who has just launched a new project in Hackney: Pets Against Loneliness (PAL).
Lyn’s vision: “We are a group of volunteers bringing together older members of the community who may feel isolated, with well-behaved dogs and their owners, for the purposes of joy and the alleviation of loneliness for all”.
Lyn is not here just to talk. She is here to listen to your ideas on how to make the project work.
Do you think this is a great idea? Do you know anyone who might like to go to PAL activities? Do you know anything about animals (not just dogs)? Would you like to be a PAL volunteer?
The voices belong to: Andreas, Cornelia, Evelyn C, Irene, Liz W, Lyn (PAL), Mimi, Nick (PAL), Rick, Walter.
This is a field recording. We don’t use expensive professional equipment or a sound studio. Our resources are minimal, but we do it all ourselves — oldies own the process.

Recorded 23 March 2018 at Whitmore Community Centre.
