After phase 1 of Shine Magazine in Spring/Summer this year was so well received, the Time To Shine team has managed to secure further funding to allow them to roll the magazine out for another year.

Phase 2 will begin with a bumper Christmas Special that they are hoping to distribute mid December followed by monthly issues from early February throughout 2021.

The team is now looking for more stories, not just for the Christmas issue but right through the year. Mojo, who edit and design the magazine are keen to recruit older writers, older people to help with steering and promoting the magazine and to capture the stories of organisations and individual older people across Leeds. They want the magazine to not only be FOR older people but BY them too.

Covid-19 and the restrictions that it has brought to our community means that it is more important than ever to stay connected and it is hoped that Shine can help us to continue reach each other – even if we can’t touch!
