Community Correspondent: Coverage of IDOP (International Day of Older People) Community Events

Lots of different community events took place across Leeds this year to celebrate International Day of Older People (IDOP) 2016.

Some of the older people who attended events funded by Leeds Older People’s Forum reported back as Community Correspondents for Time to Shine.

The events were based on this year’s theme of ‘Mental Wellbeing with a focus on arts and culture’ and took place in Leeds from 1 to 10 October.

Here are some of the highlights:

The Scribblers’ Book Launch – Age UK Leeds

Health and Well Being Day – Rothwell & District Live at Home Scheme

The Fashionable Lounge’s Intergenerational Drama Project – City Varieties Music Hall

Sage Writing Workshop

City Snaps – Skippko Arts Project

Thank you again to everyone who took part.
