BRISTOL-based charity LinkAge Network is working in collaboration with The Anchor Society and Business in the Community to help people aged 55+ who are approaching retirement, or facing redundancy, to manage the shift into the next phase of their lives.
The Post-Retirement Opportunities (PRO) event on Thursday 25 October in Filton showcases the wide range of opportunities and advice on offer in and around Bristol, across the areas of money, work, volunteering, learning, leisure and health & wellbeing.
The events feature guest speakers, workshops, and representatives from a range of organisations on hand to provide information and advice.
Sarah Parkes, PRO Events Coordinator said: “Retirement is a major transitional phase in life, and can lead to worries about money, social isolation and a loss of purpose. PRO events offer the opportunity to gather the information needed to help plan for a happy and fulfilling retirement in a social and informal setting – over some free drinks and nibbles!
“We have a fantastic guest speaker lined up for the event in October – local retiree and accomplished Career Transitions Coach Jim Currie."
The event takes place on Thursday 25 October, from 6pm - 8pm, at the BAWA Health & Leisure Club, Filton, Bristol, BS34 7RF. It is FREE and open to anyone aged 55+.
