Our Love Later Life Hero

This edition's Love Later Life Hero is Bill Jones, who's 84 and from Tiverton, Devon.

"He makes the world a better place for so many," Beverley says about her Dad, Bill.

Bill has been running a club for older people in the area for the past 20 years. In the summer, the club takes a fortnightly trip to a beautiful local town or tourist attraction. But in the winter, they prefer tea, bingo and a raffle, in the cosiness of a local hall.

"He can often be seen pushing a wheelchair for someone not a lot older than him," she adds.

Bill is always there for people who need help or a friendly face – he visits people in residential care, and drives people around when they can no longer drive themselves.

"My Dad is a real star and I'm so proud of all he does."
