An organisation that gives grants to Holocaust survivors has been drumming up support for its poster competition, calling on everyone from the very young to help come up with ideas for help for the very old.
Six Point Foundation, in association with the Association of Jewish Refugees and Jewish News, has challenged the Jewish community to come up with an A3 poster about how to help older people (70+) lead better lives.

Those with a skill or interest in drawing, photography, needlework, mosaics, digital art or collage are being invited to contribute ideas on combating loneliness or having fun, with a £200 prize and £500 charity donation for the first place winners in each of the four categories.
Susan Cohen, of the Six Point Foundation, said, “We’re excited to be running this competition encouraging people to think about what is currently being done, and what else could be done, to ensure a better life for people aged 70 years and up.”
She added: “Our grants help many UK Holocaust survivors and refugees in need improve their quality of life, but there is plenty more to be achieved.”
Would-be contestants should register to enter by 18 December, with submissions in by 26 February.
Twelve overall winners will be chosen in the spring and unveiled in Jewish News.
