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 6 October 2019.

Celebrating

Bringing People Together

Performer Will Young joins us for an uplifting & interactive Silver Sunday “Make, Do & Discover” event at the Science Museum.

Changing The Story

Around Loneliness

Rosemary’s story reminds us why Silver Sunday is so important. A simple knock on her door from a caring individual ‘opened her door to the world’.

‘We Will Remember Them’

On 6th November we held a very special Silver Sunday “Commemoration of Remembrance: 100th Anniversary of the Armistice” event at the Regent Street Cinema for 150 guests.

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.

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.
