There’s Plenty of Life in Me Yet

Jo, whom I initially met through the Association of Greater London Older Women, has been dealt more than her fair share of hardship and misfortunes. Her courage, humour and resilience in the face of abuse, violence, accidents and illness are remarkable.

Over the last few months, I have had the privilege to get to know Jo and to accompany her on her many daily journeys. Some were ordinary, others extraordinary. We laughed and we were serious. But more importantly, we have tried to tell a story that places her within her local community and demonstrates that it’s possible (and important) to stay connected, even if the going gets tough.
