No time to rest for Macclesfield’s young at heart

Having a youthful outlook on life by embracing physical activity, social outings and community engagement is the only prerequisite for members of the Macclesfield Young at Heart Club.

The group of Adelaide Hills seniors aged over 65 meets regularly to participate in exercise classes, chat over coffee at the local café, or enjoy a lunch out or day trip to the theatre.

Aside from embracing a zest for life, the club has another passion – fundraising for cancer research and patient support.

Over the past 13 years the Macclesfield Young at Heart Club and its 70-odd members have raised more than $130,000 for Cancer Council SA.

Voting for the Regional Showcase has officially closed. The winner of the People's Choice Award will be announced on 20 November.
