Red Cross helps pensioners find a Valentine

The Red Cross is encouraging lonely pensioners to look for love on Valentine’s day.

Volunteers are making surprise visits to old people’s homes and giving residents roses to take on a date. Spokesman Sebastien Kraaijeveld said: ‘It’s the day of love and we want to contribute’.
