I’m 70 this month and loving still working. I still have something to contribute, and the best thing is now I’m retired, I’m not tied to it.

I retired because I was over 65, and with Covid I had to, but I felt I was a support for the manager so I went back on the board of the organisation I co-founded, Sunflower Recycling.
