After the success of the 6-week Kick Cancer pilot programme that took place in May 2018, Shrewsbury town in the community are launching their new 10 week Kick Cancer programme, working in partnership with Lingen Davies Cancer Fund, we have created a multi-sport programme helping those living with or recovering from Cancer in Shropshire.
The programme is looking to recruit people from Shropshire and the surrounding areas onto the 10-week programme, being launched in January 2019.
Starting on Monday 28th January 2019 the project will run weekly from 11am – 1pm for 10 weeks.
The sessions will consist of different group multi-sport exercise sessions followed by a social session, with each week being held at the Shrewsbury Town in the Community Hub, Shrewsbury Town Football Club, SY2 6ST
Speaking of the programme, Naomi Atkin, Executive Officer at Lingen Davies, Said
“I am really pleased that Lingen Davies Cancer Fund and Shrewsbury Town in the Community are working together on this exciting pilot project.”
“Physical activity can be really beneficial to people during and after their cancer treatment, and this is a great opportunity for people in our community to get back to fitness or try out a new activity to help their recovery.”
“Lingen Davies is the only local charity supporting active treatment and recovery for people affected by cancer in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and Mid Wales; quality of life beyond cancer is a key theme of our £1.25 million 40th Anniversary Appeal, and we’re excited about the contribution that the Kick Cancer programme will make to this.”
