    Hello

    I was wondering if you might be able to help me.

    My name is Lucie and I am working on an ITV documentary about the UK's oldest drivers.

    I would love to find the oldest motorhome or caravan driver, and wondered if anyone knows of a caravan or motorhome driver who is in their late 80s, 90s or even 100+!

    I'd love to hear from anyone who thinks they might be able to help.

    I'm contactable on lucie.richards@rdftelevision.com

    Many thanks!

    I think you might be better advised to advertise in one of the many specialist magazines.

    Don't think you will get a sensible answer here - and it's rude to ask a Lady her age.

    Lucie if you are genuine, then you would need to ask for The Leader's help, as none of us would tell you the real age of any other member .. it is up to them to do that ... Jim could ask the member do they want to contact you ... but be assured that he would not do anything without confirmation that this is genuine and that the member is interested in helping you.

    Probably is genuine. This sort of approach is typical of organisations wanting to obtain something as cheaply as possible in order to make as much money as possible from the resulting programme. I recall similar approaches trying to get hold of "funny" CCTV footage when I worked in data protection.
