View Event Information

For many older people in Scotland, the TV or a pet is their only form of company. Many go days or weeks without speaking to anyone.

Challenge yourself to experience a self-set time period in silence whilst raising funds to help us tackle loneliness and isolation in older people. You can take part by:

  • Holding a sponsored silence
  • Silencing your phone or social media by turning it off for the day
  • Hosting your own silent disco

You can also get your colleagues involved by taking part in, or nominating someone to take part in our ‘Big Wheesht Corporate Challenge’ where business leaders go head-to-head to raise £1000 in silence.
