Moments4Seniors Launch

Saturday 1st June 2019

The sun shone brightly as we all arrived at St Laurence Centre in Catford for the much anticipated Moments4Seniors Launch.  The event was completely sold-out so how blessed we were who’d secured our tickets!  The venue was buzzing as we chose our complementary drinks and took our seats in the main hall.

Yvette and her team’s dedication, hard work and attention to detail to bring this dream into reality was so evident all around. The Moments4Seniors Launch was underway.

The afternoon was amazing. Filled to the brim with a wonderful variety of guest speakers, information, entertainment, fun, laughter and sheer joy. We heard from Yvette about her heartfelt vision for expanding and increasing JustBe’s capacity to provide more opportunities for our awesome elders. 

We were reminded by many of the pioneering sacrifices made and the horrendous injustices faced by the Windrush Generation. How much we owe to our parents and grandparents who worked so hard, contributed so much in the harsh reality of the hostile environment that was post war Britain.  Truly we are standing upon their shoulders and they deserve the very best from all of us! 

Moments4Seniors embraces the concept of Boundless. The freedom to be who you are with authenticity, dignity and joy.

The fashion show absolutely embraced and platformed being Boundless. The beautiful mature models in their stunning contemporary African inspired designs strutting their stuff with confidence and pride. Wow!  What a sensational showcase.

The audience went wild!

Moments4Seniors is all about proactive inclusion and participation for and by our seniors. It totally smashes all the of the negative stereotypes about older age.  It challenges the harmful impacts of loneliness and isolation by stepping up and providing a whole range of opportunities and experiences for the 65 plus generation.

Here’s some of what was said about the show:

“All of us have it in us”

“I like adventures, I like challenges”

“Go for it!”

“Glad that I came and when is the next show?”

“Honoured to be asked”

“Someone sees something in you that you can give”

“We all need to do something in our communities … and give back”

“Putting a smile on a senior’s face!”

The Moments4Seniors Launch certainly achieved all of its aims.  When I looked around the hall I saw smiles, happiness and joy everywhere.  A great big “Thank You” going out to Yvette, all the models and everyone involved for a truly wonderful event. Moments4Seniors is here to stay!

    Easy to use with some issues

    • Apologies if you’ve had any issues with the registration, a few technical issues with the mailing system not always automatically sending registration confirmation emails. This should be rectified shortly – thank you for your patience! We have also had to temporarily disable the instant activation to prevent unauthorised registrations, due to problems with spam, however your account should normally be accessible within one hour or less.

    Review for JustBe Members Event Dinner

    Members Event Dinner

    I was fortunate enough to win my JustBe membership at the 10th Anniversary Dinner, which was the first event I attended. I was so impressed with that night and then to have the good fortune to gain membership to this fabulous inner circle, I booked my meal slot without haste. I had decided in my head it would be my treat from my SlimmingWorld regime. On Saturday I night was planning what to wear to the event and worked out my car journey, then all of a sudden a slew of messages came through to my WhatsApp. I quickly checked the messages and initially thought they were saying the dinner was going to be cancelled, but then I realised it was still going ahead and it would be even nearer to where I live. On Sunday I arrived on time at the venue which was very welcoming and the lovely JustBe ladies were seated and waiting. Yvette took control and explained the reason for the change of venue in English and Jamaican patois
