Our Latest Testimonial

“To be honest I was sceptical to join Friends1st, but my daughter kept saying ‘mum I would love to see you with someone you are a good person you deserve happiness.’ Before I joined, I spoke to one of the team members Jo. She was really nice, and she explained to me how everything works. She sent details of the photographer whom I haven’t contacted since we are still on lockdown, once everything is back to normal, I will definitely contact him. At the moment I can’t tell whether this journey is going to be easy for me or not, but I am excited and at the same time nervous, so God help me and give me the strength to go through with it without any problems 😂 

 I have referred one on my church friends. I explained to her how professional and genuine everything is on this company. She said she is waiting for me to start the ball rolling and meeting new friends then she will join. Thank you again for welcoming me in your group, stay blessed.”
