Big Wheesht

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 who desperately need our support by joining The BIG Wheesht.

There are lots of ways to take part:

  • Hold a sponsored silence
  • Challenge yourself to give up social media
  • Part company with your mobile phone

It could be 2 hours, 24 hours or more – the choice is yours. Your challenge, your way!

Alternatively, you could crank up the tunes and hold a socially distanced silent disco.

So, will you haud yer wheesht?

You can also donate £5 by texting WHEESHT to 70085.  Text cost £5 plus one standard message rate and you will be opting in to hear more about our work and fundraising via telephone and SMS.  If you would like to give £5 and do not wish to receive marketing communications, text WHEESHTNOINFO to 70085.
