Residents at Wolsey and Abbey Mill in Leicester celebrated International Day of Older Persons with a pizza party!
Older people are especially vulnerable to loneliness and social isolation, which can have a serious effect on health. So the residents decided to invite tenants from other local PA Housing schemes to come along and join in the fun.
Wolsey and Abbey Mill Scheme Manager Ellie Campbell said: "We are hoping that the day is the start of lots of new friendships and community connections within our schemes. People made new friends and met new people.
Our residents invited the others to come back and join us for Navratri and Diwali celebrations so some really good connections were made. They are even arranging to go out and pick people up and drive them here!" Residents and guests also made donations to the scheme's chosen charity LOROS hospice and raised £90.
