u3a - Third Age Matters talks to record breaking Paralympian and u3a member

The autumn issue of members' magazine Third Age Matters is hitting doorsteps this month.

In it, Waterlooville u3a member Rosalinda Hardiman, who lost the use of her legs through polio, talks about her achievements as a world record-breaking Paralympian swimmer and how she swum both Loch Ness and the English Channel when in her 50s and 60s.

Speaking to Third Age Matters editor, Joanne Smith, about what spurred her on, Rosalinda puts it down to “sheer bloody-mindedness and determination”.

Other stories in September's issue include an interview with Great British Sewing Bee star Esme Young, photos of the movement's u3a day celebrations and an exclusive interview with new Third Age Trust Chair, Liz Thackray.
