 'I have lost a considerable amount of weight and acquired more strength and flexibility than I believed achievable. Now approaching my seventieth birthday, I engage more enthusiastically in physical activity including walking, gardening, yoga, playing football with my grandson and dancing round the kitchen! I no longer live in fear of getting older, nor am I willing to accept "It’s just your age" as a medical diagnosis… and I have more treasured friends than I have ever had at any time in my life.'  Vida, beneficiary
