Just because we can’t physically be together at the moment, it doesn’t mean we can’t share laughter and friendship with our older neighbours.
That’s why we’re launching #AloneTogether, an entire month of daily activities for older and younger neighbours to take part in at home – one for every day in April. We hope you’ll be comforted knowing that your friends across east London will be sitting down each day to take a moment to be playful and creative, despite being apart.
But this is also much bigger than us. We want this to be a resource for everyone.
So if you have older relatives, friends, neighbours, parents, colleagues, flatmates – just about anyone you think could benefit from a daily distraction this April – please download and share the full pack below.
Please also help us spread the word – and tell the world you're taking part in #AloneTogether by tweeting or Facebooking:
Let’s be #AloneTogether. I’m joining my older neighbours at @EastLDNCares and taking part in a month of daily activities this April. You can too: bit.ly/AloneTogetherActivityPack
In this first week of April, we're inviting neighbours to share their best jokes, to write a poem, to think of their Desert Island Discs, and to start lots of creative projects. Download the pack to see more – one for every day in April:
