Big Wheesht

The Big Wheesht

1-30 September 2021

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?
