Age Scotland, the national older peoples’ charity, is teaming up with Parliamentarians across Scotland to support the distribution of its annual ‘Hot Tips’ Calendar as part of its winter campaign. Each month, the calendar looks at issues to help older people get prepared for winter, stay connected in their communities and keep healthy. This year, more than 20,000 copies have been produced.
The calendar, funded by the Scottish Government, includes features from partner organisations including the University of the Third Age, Luminate and Electrical Safety First, and outlines campaigns Age Scotland are involved in, including the Charity’s Lets Get Moving Campaign and Early Stage Dementia Project.
Age Scotland’s ‘Hot Tips’ calendar is a fantastic resource for older people and I would encourage my constituents to pop in and pick up their free copy. With winters becoming increasingly severe in Scotland, it’s important that people prepare for what can happen, and Age Scotland’s ‘Hot Tips’ contain everything you need to know to stay safe, secure and connected.
Copies of the calendar are available at my constituency office, 20 Crawfurd Street, Greenock, PA15 1LJ or by calling 01475 720 930.
