We then go to talk about The Silver Line, created in 2013 by Esther Rantzen (who also created Childline) which is a free, 24-hour, 365 day a year helpline offering information and friendship and signposts people to local organisations for support or social activities. Their number is 0800 4 70 80 90.

We discuss World Animal Day which is on 4th October and give listeners six things they can do to mark the day and to help animals.

We go onto talk about an innovative partnership – The Picturehouse which has joined forces with Arthritis Research in the hope that they can help more people to enjoy the cinema experience

We share the good news that Scotland has banned fracking following a full public consultation and highlight a recent gathering at the Preston New Road fracking site in Lancashire where residents are peacefully protesting against fracking.

We then talk about an article in The Daily Good which discusses the principles of non-violent action, in particular how working together is the most effective way to unite people.
