Do you know someone who is bold and brave, enjoys trying new things and has a positive mindset towards ageing? Now is the time to recognise them!
Nominations for City of Playford’s Living Life to the Fullest Awards close this Friday. The awards celebrate people, 60 years and over, who represent positive ageing in their daily lives, while challenging stereotypes often associated getting older.
City of Playford Mayor, Glenn Docherty, said the awards, which have been held since 2010, recognise the importance of living a vibrant, active and fulfilling life.
“These awards celebrate the achievements and contribution of older people who live, work or play in the Playford council area,” Mayor Docherty said. “We want to recognise those who give back to our community – from volunteering to caring for others and setting great examples for how to remain physically, mentally and socially active as we age.
“If you know someone who stands out from the crowd and inspires you in their daily life, I encourage you to nominate them this week,” he said.
The nominations process is quick and simple, and there are categories for both individuals and community groups.
Award recipients will be announced at a gala event at the Grenville Hub on Friday 29 October.
