International day for Older People 2017 – 1st October

The international day for older people (IDOP) is an annual event held on 1st October.

We at Catholic Care recognise this day along with many other organisations and individuals who support older people. The day focuses on the enormous and significant contributions made by older people themselves in local communities and celebrates the benefits to society that comes from the talents and experiences of the fulfilled and interesting lives lived , while raising awareness towards issues of ageing.

This year we are supporting SOP, (Supporting Older People, Harrogate), with whom we are in partnership in regards to our Dine at the Deanery lunch club and whose event is taking place on Thursday 5th October at Wesley Chapel, Harrogate.

See poster below. Please come along, celebrate and have fun.
