SCLT at the Living Legacies Event
Wednesday, 3rd July 2013 saw a special one-day exhibition called 'Living Legacies' showing at the M-Shed in Bristol. The popular event was launched by The Lord Mayor and attracted several hundred visitors.
The exhibition featured 28 fantastic portraits of the BME (Black, minority & ethnic) Elders of Bristol taken by portrait photographer Luke Mitchell. This exhibition’s aim was to show that some of oldest Bristol residents could identify strongly with their country of origin, but be totally British.
The Senior Citizen Liaison Team was represented at the launch event by Roger Ibrahim, the manager of the SCLT Minorities Out-Reach Team. He took the opportunity to mingle with the guests and visitors and discussed preventing crimes against the older adult population, as well as distributing copies of the very latest Senior Siren magazine (edition 13).
Roger said, “Coming to the launch event of the Living Legacies exhibition has reminded me how culturally diverse the City of Bristol truly is.
Sadly the criminals who target older adults take little heed to the background or health of their victims, so it is the work of the SCLT to get out and about, amongst the most vulnerable and spread our message of home and personal safety”
