Elizabeth Armstrong, an Age NI volunteer, loves later life!

I love later life because there is so much for me to get involved with, be it a community group, volunteering or a local project. I love socialising and getting out and about and I have loads of opportunities to do so!

Recently, I have been involved in a local inter-generational project. This has been great to be part of and a huge achievement. We have been working on making a peace quilt and the great thing about this project is that both older and younger people have been involved. We had a laugh together and we all got on really well! Being so active in the local community and mixing with people of all ages is something I enjoy.

I am also a volunteer for Age NI and I love being so involved with the charity. It’s great to meet new people and make a difference and that is what I love most about later life.’
