Is this your brand on Milled? You can claim it.

Welcome to February's edition of The loop / Y ddolen 

Big Welsh Month

March is the month when we in Wales wear our daffodils and leeks with pride, support the Six Nations and, of course, celebrate St David’s day. So we're asking the people of Wales to celebrate our country and raise money - be patriotic, fun and charitable!

We’re sure you’ll come up with lots of inspirational ideas for how you’d like to celebrate Wales; we'd love to see local communities, schools and workplaces across Wales get involved and raise money to help support the most vulnerable older people in Wales.

For a fundraising pack in English or Welsh contact us or visit our website via the button below. The packs are free and full of useful things to help plan and have fun at your Big Welsh fundraiser.

Whatever you do, let us know – tweet, facebook or e-mail us your pictures and we’ll feature as many as we can.

Our annual Gala Dinner and Awards takes place on Friday 24 March 2017 at the Cardiff Marriott and will be hosted by BBC presenter Jason Mohammad. The black tie event will give us an opportunity to award those individuals and businesses that go the extra mile in helping to create an age friendly Wales.

The evening will also help us to mark our 70th anniversary of working with older people in Wales, so there will be lots of celebrating!

Tickets cost £70 each or £60 for 4 or more places.

If you'd like to book a place at the event please call the Fundraising Team on 029 2043 1555 or email the team.

Inspirational story

Meet Maureen Newton and Gwen Jones who are Gwent’s oldest identical twin sisters. They celebrated their 90th birthday with an afternoon tea.

Maureen’s daughter-in-law, Sian said they were overwhelmed with the surprise.

“It was a really nice day and they both enjoyed themselves. They were quite emotional when they saw what we had done for them.
They were quite emotional when they saw what we had done for them. My mother-in-law isn’t able to get around so people went up to her.”

Maureen and Gwen clearly have a cheeky side - “Sometimes when they were dating they would pretend to be each other and confuse their boyfriends.”

They used to visit each other daily, but now talk on the phone and try to meet up every fortnight.
