Contact the Elderly, which hosts free monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for the over 75s and those who live alone, has groups from the Borders to the Highlands.
The latest addition launched in Edinburgh recently, the 14th group in the city.
Valerie Crookston, Scotland executive officer at Contact the Elderly said: “It’s a fantastic testament to our invaluable volunteers, fantastic guests and great team here in Scotland that we have reached this landmark.
“The number of lives our tea parties have helped make better over the years will be extraordinary and of this I am incredibly proud.

“We operate on a very simple premise but the results are immeasurable. Chronic loneliness among our older population is a depressing fact of life but one which can be effectively remedied.
“The feedback from the older people we receive each and every week shows us just how much the friendships and outings with Contact the Elderly groups mean.”
Tea parties are up and running all over Scotland including in Inverurie, Aberdeen, Montrose, Forfar, Carnoustie, Brechin and Kirriemuir, Glenrothes, St Andrews, Dalgety Bay, Falkirk, Peebles, and Glasgow.
The charity hopes to launch most parties in Scotland this year. For information on volunteering, or being a guest, call 0141 812 1555.
