Down But Not Out: Age UK Bristol's Depression Awareness Week

As many as one in four older people in Bristol are blighted by depression, according to a report published by Age Concern England.

 

However, most are not getting any support because the illness is often wrongly seen as a natural part of getting older. In October, Age UK Bristol organised an important week of events to draw local attention to the issues of isolation and depression and improve the quality of life for older people.

Something to sing about: end of project celebration for the Age UK Bristol Go Getters

Go GettersMusic and laughter floated out of the French doors of the Arnos Manor Hotel on the 2nd June 2010 as Age UK Bristol celebrated the end of a three year Lottery funded Community Development Project.

 

The Go Getters (older people who with Age UK Bristol's support have come together to engage other older people in their local communities) arrived in their droves. What started as a small project with just fifteen Go Getters has now expanded and has over seventy, who over the period of the project have reached over four hundred older people across South Bristol!

No Time For Crime eventNo Time For Crime

Singing rang through the Withywood Centre last Tuesday as The Golden Oldies (Withywood’s Older people’s singing group) opened Age UK Bristol’s No Time for Crime event. '…And its hands off our silver tea sets!...' they sang enthusiastically to the tune of Hi Ho Silver Lining, joined by the other 80 attendees who all held copies of the aptly adapted lyrics.

 

Other tunes included ‘Bogus Caller’, a catchy version of ‘Pretty Woman’ and a version of the well know Elvis tune Return to Sender which referred to bogus junk mail which is regularly posted through older people’s doors.
