Fiona’s pas­sion for life recog­nised

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS - By Camilla Good­man camilla.good­man@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

A BUCKS woman has been named as a fi­nal­ist in na­tional com­pe­ti­tion for in­spi­ra­tional women.

Fiona Page, from Prest­wood, is one of 10 fi­nal­ists in the Peter Hahn Fab­u­lous at 50 com­pe­ti­tion de­signed to celebrate women who con­tinue to live life to its fullest post 50-years-old.

The con­test is be­ing run by pre­mium mail or­der cloth­ing brand Peter Hahn, which spe­cialises in fash­ion for 50+ women and the UK’s longestrun­ning women’s mag­a­zine The Lady.

Mrs Page, 57, was cho­sen by the panel of judges from hun­dreds of en­tries and is in the run­ning to re­ceive a £1,000 prize, a makeover and pho­to­shoot and a fea­ture in The Lady mag­a­zine. She will also be­come the face of Peter Hahn cloth­ing on the com­pany’s blog.

Fol­low­ing a ded­i­cated 15 year ca­reer as a teach­ing as­sis­tant, Mrs Page now has more time to ded­i­cate to her fit­ness pas­sions of run­ning, swimming and cy­cling which has been inspired by her 93-year-old fa­ther who cy­cles three miles ev­ery day.

Mrs Page be­lieves in be­ing fash­ion­able and likes to dress ap­pro­pri­ately for her age, but has been more am­bi­tious when it comes to her trips abroad hav­ing trekked to Ever­est Base Camp, back­packed through In­dia for three weeks with her daugh­ter, and even cy­cled all the peaks of the Tour de France since her 50th Birth­day.

She added: “I am thrilled to be one of the fi­nal­ists in the Peter Hahn Fab­u­lous at 50 com­pe­ti­tion. It’s boosted the con­fi­dence I have in my­self and I am proud that the judges have recog­nised my pas­sion for life, which has in­creased as I’ve got­ten older.”

Peter Hahn UK sales man­ager Christo­pher Wheat­ley said: “When we saw Fiona’s en­try we were im­me­di­ately struck by her pos­i­tiv­ity and ad­ven­tur­ous

PROUD: Fiona Page is one of 10 fi­nal­ists in the Peter Hahn Fab­u­lous at 50 com­pe­ti­tion na­ture. For Peter Hahn, she is the very em­bod­i­ment of what it means to be Fab­u­lous at 50 and is an in­spi­ra­tion to women of all ages.”

The win­ner will re­vealed next month.
