A message from Dame Esther Rantzen.

Imagine yourself going 7 days without chatting to anyone.

Many old people live just like this; they go a whole week with no one to talk to.

So to raise awareness, we’re asking you to go silent on social media for 7 days, and donate £7 to help The Silver Line.

To show your support, it’d be great if you could change your profile picture to a silent selfie (just like mine) so people know you’re offline.

And to really get the word out there, please share the silent film that explains the campaign, and nominate 7 friends to join you in going #SilentFor7:    


Thank you so much for your help.

Texts cost the donation plus your standard network charge and 100% of the donation will be received by The Silver Line. Please ensure you have the bill payer’s permission. Full terms and conditions of SMS donations here.
