Members of the public are invited to attend the event where there will be refreshments, goodie bags, music and more from 11am-12.30pm.

Age UK London’s Romford shop is a bright and stylish new retail hub, offering a range of Age UK products and services for the over-50s, selling new and donated items and providing free information and advice, from Age UK Redbridge.

Profits from the shop go towards charitable services and improving the lives of older Londoners.
