Mary supports the Jo Cox loneliness commission

The Jo Cox loneliness commission works to raise awareness of loneliness and to try to reduce the stigma around being lonely. A British Red Cross survey found one in five people said they always or often felt lonely. Being lonely is not just a feeling – it’s considered to be as bad for our health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Mary has signed a pledge to support the Commission in its aim to tackle loneliness.
