Celebrating Age Festival 2017

14 brave fundraisers, aged from 17 to 91 years old, recently jumped out of a plane to raise over £6,500 to support our vital services.  
Joan Livingstone, the oldest skydiver at 91, was the last to jump from over 10,000ft with a crowd of friends, supporters and other skydivers to cheer her on.  Read her story and watch the amazing video from her skydive here.

Age Friendly Island’s second annual Celebrating Age Festival begins on International Older Persons Day, Sunday 1st October with events all week to Saturday 7th October 2017.  

The Festival promotes the richness and diversity of the Isle of Wight’s communities with events to interest all Islanders, whether you are looking to indulge in familiar activities or discover something entirely new.
