Coach trips to York and Scarborough for around 500 over 60s this September. The mayor is financing the bulk of the cost by waiving the pay increase recommended for him by an independent panel. People going on the trips will be asked to pay£5 towards the cost.
Age Concern chief executive Dave Punshon said: 'We're delighted to be working with the council on a project which I am sure will provide a lot of enjoyment for a lot of older people.
'We have a bit of work to do to make sure things go smoothly, but Age Concern and the council are determined to make these days out to remember.'
The trips are scheduled to take place in September with York and Scarborough the destinations. Places will be on a first come, first served basis. Anyone over 60, who is a resident of Middlesbrough can book a place for themselves and, if needed, a carer. There'll be a£5 charge per person towards the cost of the coach.
The council's older person's champion, Brenda Thompson, said: 'I am really pleased the mayor is being so supportive of this project and full marks too to the Asian community for suggesting it in the first place.
'I am sure we will be able to organise some memorable days out. I think it will help to show that Middlesbrough is a place which takes the well-being of older people - and their opinions - seriously.'
