PENSIONERS are being given the opportunity to swap their old slippers for new ones to help reduce the risk of falls.
Its time to trade in those old slippers!
Age UK North Somerset is organising the event on February 22 from 10am to 12noon at the Wesley Centre, Portishead Methodist Church.
People can bring their old slippers and exchange them for free and enjoy a cuppa and a chat.
Age UK spokesman Klaus Wagner said: "Older people are particular at risk of trips and falls which often can have devasting consequences.
" We would like to ensure that older people stay safe in their homes and this particular part of the above event has been very popular in the past."
