TOMORROW is Silver Sunday, our annual national celebration of senior folk.
So now is the perfect moment to show appreciation for loved ones who are older and wiser.
Here are some ways to treat them without handing over too much silver . . .
Flippin’ good: Nokia has a special discount on its 2720 Flip phone, which is tailored for older users. It includes an emergency button, the Google Assistant app, an in-case-of-emergency function and enhanced features such as increased alert volume and large text size.
All of which will make life a little easier and safer, while putting your mind at ease. You can get £10 off the phone at nokia.com/phones using the code SILVERSURFER. The code is valid until Thursday, so be quick.
Go virtual: The usual activities and meets for Silver Sunday are virtual this year due to Covid. You can check out silversunday.org.uk/calendar for events older relatives would enjoy.
For example, they can share a virtual cup of tea with the Museum of London at 10.30am today, or take part in a Silver Swans ballet class at 4:30pm — both for free.
Meal deals: If you cannot see your loved ones today, why not take them for a mid-week treat instead? Over-60s get ten per cent off the entire menu on Wednesdays in Asda cafes. Or enjoy a midweek roast — sign up to Toby Carvery’s newsletter and get a voucher for 25 per cent off, to use on your next weekday visit.
Art and crafts: A personalised card by moonpig.com costs from £3.29 — not including the price of delivery. Save cash by crafting a homemade card. As well as being personalised, it shows extra love. You could get the children involved too, which everyone will love.
