Starting a new career... in your 80s
82-year-old Hilary Forde-Chalkly says she got "bored to tears" when she stopped working in her 60s. Well she's now back at work. She recently graduated with a Masters from Kingston University London, and is pursuing a career as an author. Her new vocation is contagious and she has inspired her husband Syd has also come out of retirement to help her. A perfect story for The Age of No Retirement.
You can watch this wonderful film about Hilary where she talks about how she was worried about not fitting in before starting but once she started she was just one of the students.
We are never too old to start something new.
