Glennis Hooper: I love the influence of younger generation

Now that I am growing older I really enjoy the company of younger people.

Last week my niece and I made an impromptu visit to London to have a look round one of their markets designed for the younger generation.

It made me think of the all so different lifestyles people lead. The pace was so fast; I was fascinated.

My eyes were opened and I suddenly became alive again; I felt rejuvenated.

Later that week we received a substantial donation from a young man who, with his family, had raised funds for Crazy Hats by adorning their house with a fantastic array of Christmas lights.

Karl was, quite rightly, so very proud as he presented the cheque and spent time with us talking about exciting things we, as a charity, could do to raise money.

Like the youngsters I witnessed in London, Karl was full of innovative ideas; ideas we had thought of but didn’t think we could possibly do because of us being of the older generation.

It was so uplifting to be reassured from someone younger that we weren’t past it!

We have had many younger people contact us wanting to enter our Walk on Sunday, March 23.

It has been so inspiring to listen to them.

To young and old alike, there is still time to enter.
