Over 50s take over The Lane

Have your say

OLDER people can learn a new skill, try out sports and put their brains to the test in a day of activities at the home of Sheffield United.

Golden Years is hosting a roadshow exhibition for people from Sheffield and Rotherham over the age of 50. The event takes place at Bramall Lane on Friday, August 3.

Free tai chi lessons, zumba classes, a mini casino, a golf simulator and live food demonstrations are among the activities on offer. There will also be the chance for techno-phobes to learn how to set up their own social media accounts and discover more about Twitter and Facebook.

A Blades footballer will sign autographs at the event, which is raising money for St Luke’s Hospice in Sheffield and Rotherham Hospice.
