Welcome support for Grey Pride campaign

I WOULD like to thank all your readers for their support of Anchor’s Grey Pride campaign.

Thanks to support from this region our national petition calling for a Minister for Older People to help end the prejudices faced by the elderly has now been signed by more than 100,000 people.

Now that we have more than 100,000 signatures it’s more likely the campaign will be discussed in the House of Commons.

We are now calling on the government to listen to our combined voices and appoint a minister who can take responsibility for ensuring older people’s issues are given the priority they deserve.

We hope that a minister will go some way to improve the lives of older people and help transform communities into better places to grow older.
