PEOPLE from across the borough put on their best purple clothes to celebrate World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD).
Age UK Solihull encouraged individuals to wear purple clothing to raise awareness about abuse towards elderly people.
The colour symbolises dignity, respect and royalty – which is how we should treat our elders.
The charity is appealing for people to donate just £1 to help prevent adult abuse, neglect and exploitation and will be holding an information stall with NHS Coventry and Warwickshire at The Core Theatre in the town centre.
Solihull Partnership also tweeted a photo of Solihull police’s leadership team making pledges to protect the elderly.
