Belle Isle Elderly Winter Aid – BIEWA

BIEWA 20171004BIEWA celebrated our International Day of Older People yesterday, at BITMO Gate.  Many older people from Belle Isle attended as well as Councillors Paul Truswell and Judith Blake, whom we would like to thank for sponsoring the catering for this event.

There were information stalls from the following organisations to assist older people to make informed choices: Ross Care Centres; The Leeds Directory; Care & Repair; Carers Leeds; The Green Doctor; Age UK; The Kieran Bingham Charity and the British Red Cross.

Local resident Iris Crummack said “The stalls were really informative.  Everybody seemed to enjoy the event and the food was really good!”
