SCLT Presentation Team Hosted in Backwell
Wednesday 4th March saw SCLT Public Presentation Team volunteer Roger Ibrahim being hosted by the Yeo Valley Probus Club in Backwell Bowling Complex in Somerset. The club meets every 2nd & 4th Wednesday of the month (at 10:30am) in the Bowls Centre for their meetings, which include social activities and an interesting variety of guest speakers.
Roger joined the group for their weekly gathering and entertained them with a fully interactive presentation on senior crime and the issues surrounding the swiftly aging population of the United Kingdom. The session included a fully animated PowerPoint presentation, which highlighted the current scams & cons doing the rounds, as well as suggesting other ways to stay safe in later life.
Following the presentation, Roger said, "Probus is a very good organisation and brings togther many retired people in a social setting. It certainly offers great opportunities for our seniors to share quality time together and helps to keep folks fully engaged in community activities, which is so useful in avoiding isolation and lonliness in later-life" "
Roger concluded his presentation by giving every member of the group a personal copy of the Senior Siren magazine, which gives contact details for the team, as well as great safety and lifestyle advice for older adults and readers of all age groups.
