UNITED NATIONS OLDER PERSONS DAY 2019

 

1st October has been designted by the UNited Nations as the International Day for Older Persons and is used to reflect and consider the challenges and benefits of the ageing population of the World.

 

As part of the 2019 celebrations for the event, the Senior Citizen Liaison Team Charity sponsered an Older Persons Festival at the Community Centre in the historic Somerset seaside town of Burnham-on-Sea.

 

SCLT Trustee, Ashley Jones, attended the event and interacted with the hundreds of visitors to the event throughout the day. Many local organisations and public bodies hosted information stalls within the festival hall, which offered support, advice and ideas to stay safe and active in later life.

 

Ashley Jones commented; "We have been delighted to have been able to financially support this wonderful festival of older people today. It has been a pleasure to come along and meet so many wonderful participants, who seem to have fully entered into the spirit of this auspicious occasion.
