Silver Sunday, the National Day for celebrating older people, has been held on the first Sunday of each year since 2012.
Have a look at their website and find free and low-cost events that are happening both virtually and across the country not just today (Sunday 4th October) but over the coming days.
You will be pleased to hear that the team at Web of the Week has been working hard to support this great initiative. This week we wrote individual letters to over 100 Students Unions across the country asking them to encourage their students to phone an elderly friend or relative during this difficult time.
We are delighted to say that 7 of the Student Unions have said that they will be encouraging their students to do just that.
