Lyn's* story: "I don't categorise myself as an ‘older person’ - I still feel 18 at heart!"

"As I got older, I found I wasn’t doing much with myself, just the odd bit of gardening here and there. I started having cardiac problems because of the Lupus. I knew I need to start getting out and being active.

One day, I spotted a leaflet for Hestia’s Age Activity Centre (AAC) in my local pharmacy. They were doing yoga and Tai Chi – all the good stuff I needed to be involved in!

It really has added something special to my life. I’ve met interesting people and made close friends; people I feel I’ve known my whole life."
