From relaxation tips and yoga to healthy food and afterhours shopping, Ageing Better Middlesbrough and M&S are inviting people aged over 50 to an exclusive in-store wellbeing evening.

The event, being held on Thursday, January 18 from 5.30pm to 8pm at M&S Middlesbrough Café in Hillstreet Shopping Centre, will offer locals the opportunity to connect with others over the age of 50 in the town in a bid to tackle loneliness and isolation.   

To ensure entry, local are being asked to book their place at the event by contacting Rebecca Hughes, Ageing Better Middlesbrough Information and Marketing Officer on 01642 257034 or by emailing info@ageingbettermiddlesbrough.org.uk to book a place. Places are limited. 

Rebecca said: “Thanks to support from Big Lottery Fund using National Lottery Funding, we work with older people across Middlesbrough, to tackle loneliness and social isolation. 

“We are really looking forward to welcoming people to our event and helping them start the New Year in a positive and relaxed frame of mind.”

Terri-Anne Rigg, M&S Middlesbrough Store Manager, said: “Loneliness is such a pressing issue in our society and a cause our employees and customers feel strongly about.

“We are proud to be helping Ageing Better bring older people together – who otherwise may not have even met – in a safe and familiar setting.

“We have had a fantastic response from previous events and hope to see locals join us again to forge more friendships and learn about health and wellbeing.”

M&S will trial a range of actions designed to tackle the issues that matter most to communities including loneliness and isolation through events like this wellbeing evening in partnership with Ageing Better Middlesbrough.
