Older people in Leeds have stories to tell. This is the place to tell them. Stories of our lives, memories of our city, stories about how we have coped with adversity in the last few months. Stories to make you laugh, to move you, to make you think. All kinds of stories from all kinds of older people in Leeds. 

Older People.

Sharing Stories.


A Time to Shine Project


Shine Magazine.

The latest edition of Shine is Available Now


Shine Magazine is a new publication from Time to Shine that shares the stories

of older people in Leeds. The idea is to help older people feel connected across

the city.

Shine includes a mixture of features: different opinions; memories of Leeds’ past; life-stories; health tips and information; and more.

Time to Shine partners with Leeds City Council to distribute the magazine to older people who are most isolated, especially to people without internet access. It’s delivered alongside food parcels. There’s also an online version: every issue can be downloaded and each article will be soon be available here on our website

 Shine was created as a response to the coronavirus crisis. The magazine relies on partners and individuals to provide stories and other content. If you are an older person or are supporting an older person who might want to share their story, please get in touch. We’re looking for stories, handy tips, jokes, artwork, poetry, memories ... and more. Just get in touch and we’ll send you all the details on how you can contribute.
