January 2019

In November 2013 Dame Esther Rantzen launched a free, confidential 24 hour helpline specifically for vunerable and isolated older people, and in just five years they have received more than 2 million calls. 

There task now is to find supporters who share their vison, help spread awareness and raise the resources they need to pay for the service. 

Gerry & Joanne were kindly invited by Carl Austin-Behan (a past Lord Mayor of Manchester) and his husband, Simon. Carl was Lord Mayor when Gerry became High Sheriff! To a celebratatory dinner for the five years that Silver Line has been running.

It was a great evening and raised £71,700 with more money due in so final figure should be over £100kyes
