Older lottery players might get something back

The Silver Dreams Fund is the first of the Big Lottery Fund’s dedicated investments in older people in England, and is being delivered in association with the Daily Mail. 

What a strange combination - the lottery people and the Daily Mail.

The fund wants to: "pioneer ways of working with older people that will allow them to play a much greater role in their communities. They should be able to influence the local services and facilities that will help them prepare for and manage major life-changes."

My initial reaction when reading this was to think it will be a big waste of time and cash. Maybe not? Time will tell. I will revisit it in a year's time and see what has been delivered. Dick Stroud
