Members of pensions campaign call for support in King’s Lynn town centre
Campaigners from the Pension Action In Norfolk (PAIN) - part of the national WASPI (Women Against State Pension Age Inequality) group - have been in King's Lynn promoting their cause.
The women were yesterday taking action against the acceleration in the state pension age by calling for transitional arrangements to be put in place for those impacted by the move.
Women born in the 1950s face having their pensions delayed by up to six years.
The west Norfolk town was identified as being low in members and campaigners spent two hours urging the public to sign a petition asking Norfolk MPs to back their cause.
Debbie de Spon, a member of the PAIN administration team, said: 'We are all waiting different periods of time, so everybody's story if different but we are all affected by the same thing. We are paying the price for state pension age equalisation.'

PAIN member Lynn Nicholls said: 'We do not disagree with bringing women's state pension age in line with men's, just the harsh, unfair way it has been done.'
