Today Shrewsbury town in the community launched their new Kick Cancer programme, working in partnership with Lingen Davies Cancer Fund, they 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, Telford and Mid-Wales onto the 6-week programme which will start on 13th March, running every Tuesday, 3.30pm – 5.30pm.
The sessions will consist of different group exercise sessions followed by social sessions both held at The community Hub at Shrewsbury Town Football Club.
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.”
