Congratulations to Pat the #GetBoldNotOld_2015 WINNER
The winning pic was taken during the 60 second free fall when Pat decided to give skydiving a go. With these amazing photos Pat wrote “I believe people over 70 should “have a go” at whatever they have been thinking about, after all no one knows how much time we have left, so jump in and enjoy life’s adventures”
The GetBoldNotOld_2015 selfie competition is committed to breaking down the traditional stereotypes of growing older and creating a more positive image of ageing.
“We want to connect with the public in a fun creative way to help fight ageism and to highlight the fact that when people reach 70 years of age, there is significant scope to set new life goals to continue to learn, create, achieve, love, enjoy and to live life to the fullest,” Ms Buckley says.
“Sharing memories and photos is now easier than ever through social media – and seniors are embracing social media and taking advantage of the family and friendship connections it can provide,” she says.
