THURSDAY 1 OCTOBER 2020

UK Older People’s Day is on 1st October every year to coincide with UN International Day of Older Persons. The day supports the campaign to challenge negative attitudes and outdated stereotypes.

Fundraising Officer, Becky, and Damson Wood Infant School Headteacher, Mrs Hume, holding a certificate, and four children from the school holding a giant cheque.

Age UK Solihull commemorates this day by encouraging schools and work places (where safe to do so) to wear their slippers for the day and donating just £1.00.

In 2019, you helped to raise £1,626.42, which will enable us to continue providing our services for local people who need us.

If your school or workplace would like to get involved with Slip into Slippers, please contact us on 0121 704 7842 or email events@ageuksolihull.org.uk.
