» The Londoner’s Diary, 29th September 2011: Life over 50 is better for author » Jill Shaw Ruddock

“ Ruddock has taken the positive feedback of her book as a boost and is launching the Second Half Foundation to enable people to rediscover the joys of growing old. The first event is a lunch next Monday, October 3rd, with Mayor of Kensington & Chelsea Julie Mills, Ruby Wax and Judith Owen. The Second Half Centre is also due to open at St Charles Hospital, North Kensington, next year. Shaw Ruddock believes “the feeling of not belonging to a community is a large and growing problem for our society and, in particular, the ageing population.” Meanwhile her book continues to break all records on Amazon and now has 60 five-star reviews.” THE LONDONER’S DIARY, THE EVENING STANDARD
