ILC-UK Chief Executive recognised as one of 66 influential people aged over 66

Baroness Sally Greengross, Chief Executive of the International Longevity Centre – UK, has been recognised by the charity WRVS in its Gold Age Power List. The list celebrates the 66 most influential people aged over 66 in the UK today, who together are “making Britain a great place to grown old”.

The WRVS has compiled the Gold Age Power List to “challenge stereotypes and misconceptions of older people”, who are too often seen as a burden. The list recognises the important contributions made by Britain’s older generations and demonstrates the crucial role that many “Gold Age Pensioners” play in society.

Baroness Greengross features alongside individuals from the worlds of academia, art, business, politics, entertainment and sport, including the Queen, Sir David Attenborough and Vanessa Redgrave. Also included are “Local Heroes”, older men and women making an impact in their communities.
