The charity , which officially marks its milestone birthday next year, is looking to recruit a group of ‘Age Is Just A Number’ Ambassadors, to help raise £40,000 over the next 12 months.

From those who are young at heart and staying active, to those looking to support their local community, it is hoped the new ambassadors will help to spread the charity’s message and help to cement its future.

Age Concern Central Lancashire is dedicated to supporting vulnerable people across the county, specialising in dementia care and offering access to essential help at home and community activities.

And, to celebrate its 40th birthday, the charity is planning a packed schedule of events.

Suzanne Carr, CEO at Age Concern Central Lancashire, said: “We’re incredibly excited about our upcoming 40th celebrations and, as we approach this huge milestone, we want to hear from local people who have a real passion for living life to the fullest and not letting age get in their way. The ambassadors will play a big part in our celebrations epitomise our values and be proud to fly our flag across their community.”

Pat Ascroft, 83, from Garstang has set the bar high with her recent challenges - climbing in the Himalyas, biking round Cuba and walking the Great Wall of China.
