A Silver Celebration with the D-Day Darlings from Britain's Got Talent
On 25 November 2013, Dame Esther Rantzen launched The Silver Line, a free, confidential 24-hour helpline for vulnerable and isolated older people, open every single day and night of the year. Just 5 years later the helpline has received more than 2 million calls from older people all over the UK, many who have no one else to turn to, some who call just to say “goodnight”.
We invite you to join Dame Esther Rantzen and a host of her celebrity friends for an evening of music, singing, readings and surprises in celebration of the charity’s 5 th Birthday and for a magical start to the festive season.
“My life was so silent before the Silver Line because I can’t get out. I felt like no one cared whether I was alive or dead. But now I can pick up the phone and have a chat, a laugh or even a little weep. They are angels and have changed my life”.
All proceeds from the event will go to The Silver Line (Reg. Charity no. 1147330) and will help to make sure that no older person needs to be alone over Christmas or this winter.
