Recognising Island Achievements
Islanders are invited to recognise the achievements of local older people by nominating them for a Celebrating Age Award. Sponsored by Wright Estate Agency and hosted by Age UK Isle of Wight (Age UKIW), the Annual Celebrating Age Awards are returning as part of the wider Celebrating Age Festival this October, 1st – 7th October 2017.
If you know an individual, or a group, who have dedicated time and effort to making the Isle of Wight a better place to live, helped out in their community, or who has defied age as a barrier to overcome a physical challenge, or who have worked with younger people to create, accomplish or campaign nominate them now to win a first prize of £100.
The third annual Celebrating Age Awards will be held at Lakeside Spa Hotel on Thursday 5th October 2017 from 7pm.
