A BLACKBURN sheltered housing scheme is hoping to give older people more of a voice.

Staff from Anchor’s St Philips Court, St Philips Street, Blackburn, are part of a national project, in which people over 60 will contribute to the words of a charity song, to be released as a single.

Jean Lowes hopes older people will drop into St Philips Court and get involved.

She said: “The lyrics of the song will be shaped by people’s experiences. I would like to hear about older people’s achievements, aspirations, and the challenges they have overcome, as well as the benefits of old age.”
