Baking for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

To mark World Elder Abuse Awareness day, the partners and staff at our Liverpool offices held a cake and bake sale this week.

The budding Paul Hollywoods in the office put their culinary skills to good use creating a tempting range of treats to raise money for the charity Action on Elder Abuse. With cakes, muffins, cookies and pastries on sale, it was no surprise that we raised an impressive £180 from our cake sale in just over an hour. Here are our pictures from the sale.

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day happens each year on 15 June. It was established by the United Nations, following representations by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse. Action on Elder Abuse is responsible for co-ordinating the activities of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day here in the UK. As mentioned on the charity’s website:

“World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is about working together to bring greater recognition of the mistreatment of older adults wherever they live throughout the world and to highlight the need for appropriate action. It is intended to give abuse and neglect of older adults a global relevance that will sustain and move prevention efforts forward throughout the whole year and years to come.

Each year individuals and organisations come together to raise awareness of elder abuse and to fundraise for AEA. It represents the one day in the year when the whole world voices its opposition to the abuse and suffering that is inflicted on some of our older generations. And the UK always plays its part in voicing that opposition.”

As well as holding our cake sale and supporting efforts to raise awareness of the abuse suffered by many elderly people here in the UK, at Canter Levin & Berg our specialist elder abuse solicitor Romilly Houghton can also provide practical legal advice for victims of elder abuse and their families.
