Lou, Ellie and Turi are preparing to jump out of a fully functioning aircraft to raise money for The Silver Line. Yes, we are mad! We need your help to raise funds, so please dig deep - thank you x
Since our national launch in November 2013, The Silver Line Helpline has received over 2 million calls. Over two-thirds of these calls were made overnight or at weekends when no other helpline is available for older people who may be lonely, isolated or confused. We now receive around 10,500 calls every week from lonely and isolated older people; with 53% of callers saying they have literally no-one else to speak to.We rely entirely on voluntary donations to cover the cost of calls to the helpline, just £10 allows us to answer 2 calls.
