SPONSOR our Trustee Tony Wilson or our Member Zia Haque


Our very courageous Trustee, Tony Wilson (81 years) and our member Zia Haque, are trying to raise funds for us by JUMPING OUT OF A PLANE on Saturday 14 April 2018. If you would like to sponsor Tony or Zia please visit our donations page.

Alternatively is you are bit more ambitious and would like a New Year’s challenge you can help raise funds for us by skydiving yourself (or suggest to family/friends if they are itching to jump!) If you would like to join Tony and Zia please contact them.

BOPF’s aim is that every older person in the city is an equal, valued, participating member of the community who can influence the decisions which affect their lives. (Read more on the About Us pages).

Our manifesto, launched in 2016, sets out the priorities in achieving our aim through influencing key providers and decision makers in the city, and by working with others. It is fully supported by Mayor Marvin Rees, Kerry McCarthy MP, many councillors and others. Please read it and let us know what you think – it belongs to all older people in the city.
