The South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust is inviting older people in the Lisburn area to attend a special event to celebrate the International Day of Older People.

The event will be held at Maghaberry Community Centre on October 7 at 12.30pm and will give older people a chance to come together and celebrate their contribution to society.

Attendees will be able to enjoy a complimentary lunch and sing-along. There will also be an opportunity for people to pick up information from the ‘Make the Call’ and ‘Caring communities Safe and well’ programmes.

In the South Eastern Trust area there are approximately 64,000 people aged 65+ and by 2025 this will have increased to approximately 80,000, representing a large proportion of society.

International Day of Older People (Oct 1) recognises the experience, knowledge and contribution older people make to our community.

Anyone wanting to attend the celebration event should call Wendy McDowell on 028 9268 0852 or email
