The Age Concern Canterbury 2015 Positive Ageing Expo held at Papanui High School was a hit for both the exhibitors and the attendees.
With exhibits from social service and government agencies, recreation groups and businesses, there was something for everyone. Approximately 6000 people attended, A very rewarding result for the event co-ordinator Yvonne Palmer of Age Concern Canterbury. "People remarked on the stimulating atmosphere on the day, there was a fabulous turn out and it was wonderful to see many sons and daughters accompanying an older adult," says Yvonne.
Papanui High School pupils, raising funds for their sporting travel, all put their best foot forward and helped set up, break down and held essential roles throughout the day. Looking at the way they conducted themselves they also enjoyed the occasion and the difference they had made.
Many exhibitors have re-booked a site already for next years event and late comers, who missed out this year have booked to make sure they have a site next year. If you are considering joining us as an exhibitor contact Yvonne Palmer on Ph3317808 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
