‘Studies have shown that activity levels reduce significantly following cancer diagnosis, but exercise interventions have great potential to improve the health and wellbeing of people who have been affected by cancer’ (Canrehab.co.uk 2018).
Our objective is to address this research and offer a service to support the transition from cancer/cardiac treatment in hospital into daily life.
We are delighted to announce the news of our recent successful bid to Sport England’s Tackling Inequalities Fund.
Freedom Leisure is pleased to have secured funding to deliver a physical activity programme for Tandridge residents who are living with cancer or have a cardiac condition.
The funding we have received for residents allows us to offer four cycles of a 6 week programme of tailored physical activity with our Level 4 qualified cancer/cardiac trainer, Anita.
We currently have spaces for the next programme starting on Monday 4 January 2021 at 11.15am. The 6 week programme is FREE for all participants.
This would be ideal for any Tandridge resident who is finishing cancer/cardiac treatment in hospital or a resident who is no longer requiring hospital care but has a cardiac condition or is living with cancer who would benefit from a specific tailored programme.
After the funded programme ends we will be able to continue offering a service by opening up places on our established Exercise Referral programme at de Stafford Sports Centre led by qualified trainers.
If you know of someone this would benefit or would like more information please email or call Anita for an informal chat:
