Due to Covid-19 we have been forced to cancel all of our current classes. However, we have moved all of our sessions over to Facebook where we regularly upload different exercise videos from Active Forever seated classes to Zumba for our mum's stuck at home with the kids!
We've moved all of our weekly exercise sessions to to private Facebook groups. If you'd like to join just click below we will give you access! Our up to date timetable has been posted on the left letting you know what days and times we will be posting in the groups.
Please also call us if you'd like to chat!
Our group designed to help get the over 55's active during lockdown. We post 4 videos per week that can be carried out seated or standing!
Every Monday we will give you two videos. One for the adults and one for the children. Both are based around exercise and play. Adults class is 30 mins long and will be either Zumba or Legs/Bums/Tums
This is our overall general group where we post all our updates but we regularly post videos where the exercise can be done by older children and adults together! A weekly Zumba Kids video is posted along with yoga!
For that one day a week we were key workers. Delivering fresh fruit/veg/bread/milk to some of are isolated residents around Sunderland! The satisfaction of being able to help these people was priceless.
Each week we are designing, printing and distributing 100's of newsletters to all of our Active Forever clients. These newsletters are our way of keeping in touch with them regularly. They include some seated exercises, a weekly quiz, recipes and our personal contact info incase they get stuck one week with the shopping or want to call for a chat.
During this lockdown we have teamed up with Sunderland council's befriending service! We regularly call residents who are vulnerable and lonely. When VE day came around we put together some afternoon tea packages and delivered them to residents we thought really deserved a nice surprise! It was a pleasure put smiles on these peoples faces!
Over 3 days we delivered over 400 Activity bags for isolated over 55s
We have also made 50 Children’s Activity Bags we are dropping these off families Together for Children work with.
Huge thank you to our funders and those that pledged to us via our crowdfunding campaign.
Thank you to West Sunderland Community councillors from the St Anne’s wards - 70 bags were delivered to local residents.
37 bags went to Ashton Grange Care home for their residents.
THANK YOU 😊
