Silver Sunday, This Sunday 4th October 2015

Friday, October 2nd, 2015 by morethan

This Sunday is Silver Sunday; an annual day of fun and free activities for older people across the UK. Led by The Sir Simon Milton Foundation, it celebrates the value and knowledge they contribute to our communities while combating loneliness and isolation. Everyone can get involved, whether that’s organising an event, spreading the word, or simply attending an activity.

“This is a special day for older people to get involved in community events and activities to bring back some of the traditional community spirit. It’s also a small thank you for your contribution to society.”   Joanna Lumley

Silver Sunday is set to be even bigger and better with events happening right across the UK. From concerts to museum tours, cycle rides to chocolate tastings, there will be something for everyone.   Do take a look at the event calendar to see if an event is happening near you. Events include:

Also the Bright Life Festival is taking place this week from 1st to 8th October.  A week-long festival that showcases the central and valued role older people play in their communities whilst bringing generations together through a range of social activities and celebration events.

For some of the events you need to book so be quick as places are going fast.

Alternatively if you cannot attend an event but still want to be involved; do check out the various ways you can get involved:

We wish you all great fun for this weekend’s activities and do share your stories with us next week.

Best wishes
