Active Ageing week 2018 brought together members of the public, University academics and students through a variety of activities all aimed at celebrating active ageing across Worcester. Attendees learnt about benefits of being active, gained nutritional advice, had a go at exercises to improve balance and coordination and were tested for their fitness levels.
The finale, our guest speaker Alex Rotas, was inspirational. Her photos and the stories she shared through them made us open our eyes and reconsider our perceptions of ageing. Reflecting on our week Alex said “I was honoured to be part of the final day of the University of Worcester’s Active Ageing Week in September 2018. What truly blew me away was the breadth of the activities on offer.”
