Event description

Description

The Post-Retirement Opportunities (PRO) Project aims to inform people aged 55+ who are approaching retirement about the opportunities and advice available, helping them to plan for a happy, healthy and fulfilling retirement.

Funded by the Bristol and District Retirement Council, PRO is being delivered by LinkAge Network in collaboration with the Anchor Society and Business in the Community.

The launch on 25 July is the first in a series of events taking place across 2018-19, showcasing the wide range of volunteering programmes, career and financial advice, training opportunities, and active, cultural and social activities on offer in the Bristol area. The events will feature guest speakers, workshops and taster sessions, and representatives from a range of organisations on hand to provide information and advice.

Refreshments including wine, soft drinks and nibbles, will be served throughout the evening.

The event is FREE and open to anyone aged 55+ who is interested in learning more about the opportunities and advice available, and/or looking to meet other people at a similar stage in life.
