Hundreds of pensioners from across Wales will gather at the Grand Pavillion in Porthcawl for the Active Wales annual conference and rally on Wednesday 6 June.
Guest speakers at the morning session include Vaughan Gething AM, the Cabinet Minister for Health and Social Services, Baroness Gale of Blaenrhondda, the president of Active Wales, and a representative from Community Pharmacy Wales.
Active Wales, formerly known as the National Old Age Pensioners’ Association of Wales, has a broad aim of improving the quality of life for older people in Wales through campaigning. At the same time, it organises lots of informal activities to help combat loneliness and isolation amongst older people.
Therefore, after the formal business in the morning, Active Wales welcomes members of the public to join them at their rally in the afternoon that includes a wide variety of entertainment and usually, lots of laughter. It takes place between 2.30pm and 5.00pm, and costs £2.50 with a free raffle prize draw.
