Group aims to bring widows together to share experiences

A new social networking group is encouraging women who have lost their husbands to get together for companionship.

The Jolly Dollies was set up by widows for widows by Yvonne Vann, who lost her husband six years ago.

She said: “We have a member in Bearsden and in nearby areas that are desperate for their group to grow so that widows can find the friendship and camaraderie that a groups of this kind offer. We aim to give those who are looking to regain a social life the forum to do so through friendship and organised social events.

Widows often find it difficult to return to social situations, but Yvonne said a group like Jolly Dollies can be an enormous help in getting back into swing of things.
