Silver Sunday celebrates sixth year helping older people make new friends

This October over 1,500 Westminster residents aged 65+ have the opportunity to take part in Silver Sunday events to celebrate and help combat loneliness and social isolation.

Cllr Christabel Flight, Older Person’s Champion for Westminster City Council and Founder of Silver Sunday, said: “I want to thank the hundreds of people throughout the United Kingdom who are putting on special events for people aged 65 and over to date over 700 events are happening throughout the country.

“It is a great day that has always left many people smiling. So if you have an older neighbour or relative who you think will enjoy the day, please do let them know about it or bring them along to try one of the great activities on offer.”

Now in its sixth year, Silver Sunday is on the 1 October.  Events and activities are donated by businesses, organisations and volunteers across the city and many of them are run by volunteers. Find out about events in Westminster.  Westminster Plus Magazine or visit the Library for details and share with friends and relatives who you think may want to enjoy the events.
