World Friendship Day and the Peachland Wellness Centre

What is World Friendship Day?

Friendship Day is celebrated every year on the first Sunday of August. The first friendship day was held in 1958. Friendship Day is a day to celebrate friendship.

To mark the importance of the most beautiful relationship in the world, Friendship Day is celebrated every year. This year, it fell on August 1, 2021.

Friendship is one of the most important and valuable things in our life and a very beautiful gift you can give to anyone. You meet many people in life but only a few stay with you forever.

Ways to Celebrate Friendship Every Day

Why not send some happy friendship day wishes to someone you value as a good friend? It is always nice to hear that your/their friendship is something you treasure. Below are some ideas of ways to express how much their friendship means to you:

Friendship Day wishes:

  • It takes a lifetime to find a person like you in this twisted world. I felt lucky right at the moment I met you. Having you as a best friend is way more than I expected. I wish you a very Happy Friendship Day!

  • It's hard to find someone who will stay with you in your hard times, someone who will help you rise up, again after you fall. Fortunately for me, that I have you. Happy Friendship Day love!

  • No one can ever be sad if they have a friend like you. You are the most wonderful friend I could ever wish for. Thank you for always being there, a very Happy Friendship Day to you!

  • Today on this very special occasion, I want to let you know that you are my most favorite person in this world. I enjoy your company most. A very Happy Friendship Day to you!

  • As lovers say, distance doesn't matter if two hearts are loyal towards each other. Same, it doesn't matter how far we are; we will always be in each other's hearts. Happy Friendship Day!

Volunteer with Peachland Wellness Centre – Friendly Visitor/Caller

If you are new to Peachland or not new but looking to make new connections? The Peachland Wellness Centre (PWC) is proud to offer a Friendly Visitor/Caller service. This service is designed to provide an opportunity for individuals with similar interests to get together, physically or by telephone, once a week for companionship, friendship and social support. Participants are matched with a Friendly Visitor/Caller volunteer by the PWC Services Coordinator.

Friendly Visits/calls typically take place once a week lasting one to two hours. The location of the visit is at the discretion of the participant and volunteer. Activities may include, but are not limited to, going for a walk, playing cards or games, having tea or coffee or sitting and enjoying good conversation.

Participating in the Friendly Visitor/Caller service either as a participant or a volunteer is a wonderful way to connect with the community and make a new friend!
