Sunday 7th October 2018
A day of free events and activities for older people
Days to go
Silver Sunday is 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. The next Silver Sunday is on 7 October 2018.
Bupa care homes celebrate Silver Sunday
Over 80 Bupa care homes opened their doors to the local community and celebrated Silver Sunday 2017
In February a special Silver Sunday film screening of ‘Finding Your Feet’ for 150 older people was held, with special guests Joanna Lumley and Imelda Staunton.
Dance legend Wayne Sleep joined 1,000 Westminster residents aged 65 and over at the 12th annual Westminster Tea Dance on Sunday 10 December.
This year was the largest Silver Sunday to date, with over 700 events and activities for older people across the country including ferry rides, tea dances, and many more.
What they say…
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, OBE FRGS
lt is so important that older people feel included in London’s communities. That is why I support Silver Sunday and hope that you all have a wonderful time celebrating the valuable contributions that older people make. These contributions span not just London but up and down the UK. In a city as large as London there is no need for older people to ever feel lonely or isolated but sadly some do. As Mayor, I want to make sure that everyone is engaged and active in their community – young or older.Sadiq Khan
