What's happening in October?

GEORGE NEWS - The October world calendar offers lots of opportunity to put on a special occasion.

The month has a long list of specific days earmarked for various causes. Businesses and organisations can pick any of these and celebrate together with millions of others on the planet, while also creating awareness of a worthy cause and spreading goodwill.

October is World Menopause month, Apple Month, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, World Blindness Awareness Month, Down Syndrome Awareness Month, and Dyslexia Awareness Month, amongst others.

  • 5th - World Teachers Day
  • 6th - World Communion Day
