For a nation that holds its older generation close to their hearts, it may surprise you to learn than only 66% of people have ever celebrated Grandparents’ Day.
The celebration, which was officially introduced to the UK some twenty years ago by the charity Age Concern, falls on Sunday 7th October this year and, just like Father’s Day and Mother’s Day, is celebrated all over the world. This joyous occasion provides the ideal opportunity to dedicate a special day to your grandparents and thank them for their love and support over the years.
Over recent years it’s undeniable that the role of grandparents within the family has become more important than ever. A reported 72% provide childcare for their children’s offspring and 62% have provided financial support to their adult children and grandchildren in the last 12 months. In light of these statistics it would seem that grandparents are the unsung heroes of the twenty first century, allowing the family unit to cope with the demands and challenges of modern day life.
