It was an instant connection for Mick and Graham who met in late 2017.
Mick is a volunteer with the Red Cross and catches up with his friend Graham every Friday morning at Arcare Portarlington.
Every Friday, the men chat for two hours about their shared interests, family, history and their country of origin, England.
Their friendship is very important to one another. In fact, recently Graham invited Mick to join him and his family for his 90th birthday celebrations at a local restaurant.
Their friendship goes far beyond their connection through Mick’s volunteering.
The Portarlington ladies had a ball at the Clifton Springs Golf Club recently, singing away to their favourite Elvis Presley hits during a tribute performance.
The tunes didn’t finish once the concert was over – the ladies continued the sing-along from door to door on the way home.
