Age UK brings seaside spirit to Lib Dems' conference in Birmingham
Age UK's seaside style photo booth was the off stage highlight of the Lib Dem conference in Birmingham. An animated image of Nick Clegg invited delegates to take their picture holding a placard with their hopes for people in later life. The photos were then pinned up on the stand highlighting issues affecting older people. The stand, shown above with Age UK's Jen Pufky, was, constructed by the company Paper Dog and was such a success it won best stand at the conference. And who said party conferences couldn't be fun?
