Big Wheesht

The Big Wheesht

September 2020

Calling all business leaders in Scotland!

How quickly can you escape the silence?

Imagine having no-one to talk to, day after day. Imagine how lonely you would feel. Sadly, 200,000 older people in Scotland go at least half a week without speaking to anyone.

You can help us tackle loneliness and be there for older people by joining The Big Wheesht corporate challenge.

We are looking for TEN business leaders and influencers in Scotland to ‘haud their wheesht’ and raise £1,000 each, using only their networks, before being allowed to talk again.

As well as raising funds this is also a great opportunity to raise awareness of loneliness among older people and how Age Scotland are helping. 

And who doesn’t like a bit of healthy competition too!

So, will you haud yer wheesht?
