A project to help elderly people in parts of Cumbria live healthier and more active lives has received a cash boost from national charity.
The Coalfields Regeneration Trust has given £88,861 to help run Age Concern Northwest Cumbria's Active Living project, which launches on Monday.
Project workers will help co-ordinate activities at resource centres for older people in Allerdale and Copeland.
Research revealed a need for better access to services for the elderly.
The project team will help also develop the use of Age Concern's fleet of seven specially adapted mini-buses, set up luncheon clubs, art classes, and exercise classes.
