AGE Cymru is Wales’ largest and leading charity for older people.

I’m writing to remind your readers that Sunday September 28 to Sunday October 5 will be Age Cymru’s first Age Positive Week.

Age Positive Week will be our national celebration of all that is positive about ageing and the contribution older people make to our communities.

We believe this celebration is vital to counter the negative stereotyping of older people and the ageism that we all too often see, hear or experience in society.

Age Cymru wants the Welsh public to get involved in Age Positive Week by organising their own celebrations.

From organising exhibitions to day trips, concerts to song and dance events, coffee mornings to arts and crafts workshops, there are plenty of ways you can get involved in Age Cymru’s Age Positive Week.

If you would like an information pack about Age Cymru’s Age Positive Week, please contact Age Cymru on 029 2043 1555 or email
