Are you enjoying a happy and contented retirement? Is retirement proving to be the happiest chapter of your life? If so, why not write about about it and enter the 'LaterLife Challenge'
The LaterLife Challenge seeks to recognise great examples of how Britain's over 50s are making the most of retirement — in particular, recognising those who are making the most of their retirement (or partial retirement) and are great role models for us all.
The organisers are particularly keen to hear from over 50s who are:
- having lots of fun
- gaining personal benefit
- defying traditional age stereotypes
- utilising a lifetime's knowledge, capabilities and experience
- doing something for others
They very much want to hear from you about what you, or a friend, are doing in later life that may be of interest to others and give them ideas and inspiration about their own retirement. However little, or much, you are doing in your later life the organisers of the LaterLife Challenge would love to hear your story.
To add an incentive to participate in the Laterlife Challenge there are some excellent prizes. There will be both regional winners and national winners as well as a prize draw just for entering.
This year the panel of judges includes celebrity Valerie Singleton of Blue Peter fame.
TO ENTER just complete the online entry form — see here
Organisers are looking for examples under one or more of the following categories:
- New experiences
- Discovery and Ideas
- Active in later life
- Doing something for others
- and overall examples of having an enjoyable and fulfilling time.
You can see some of the examples of previous winners of the LaterLife Challenge here.
