February saw us receive funding from Comic Relief and Groundwork NE & Cumbria to put together activity packs which we decided to name "Bags of Sunshine" We are working with our friends at Young Asian Voices who are going to hep distribute these bags to families around Sunderland! We hope they enjoy them as much as we did putting them together.
Wednesday 16th February 2021 we delivered 25 gift boxes contain special surprises to people in and around Sunderland. We visited some of our elderly isolated clients that are struggling with the pandemic, some local schools that have supported us through Covid and other community workers who like us have been working hard throughout the current situation we have been in since March 2020! We wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all these people. #bekind
Our team have been out delivering cooking /yoga activity parcels to families in the West area of Sunderland. We teamed up with Pallion Action Group and Parkers Trust to put together these fantastic half term treats. We had a great morning making some families very happy!
We may be out of lockdown but we are still giving our Active Forever members weekly Yoga workouts to do at home. We have introduced our first Walk n Talk session in Barnes Park to help build stamina back up. We will still continue regular group video chats with our members via Facebook! We even recently tried out our first Bingo game online via Facebook Rooms...it went down a storm!
Again we are so upset to have to cancel our in person classes but we are pleased we have that back up of being able to share workouts with our Mums and kids via Facebook. In our private group we have such a large variety of workouts accessible to them so that they take part whenever they manage to get the time! A new workout is posted every week and there's also some recordings of baby sensory/dance classes available too along with weekly live yoga kids sessions! Nothings nothing that makes us more happy than families exercising together.
Meet the newest member of our team! Through funding we have been able to train up a volunteer to be then able to teach for us in the future. Sam has recently completed her Level 2 Exercise to Music course and we can't wait to have her work with us! She has attended our sessions from the very beginning bringing her daughter Grace along to join in a wide variety of our classes. Now Grace will be starting school soon it will be great for Sam to join the team and keep up her training but from the other side as one of the team!
"GOGA" stands for Get Out Get Active!
Each week we post a quick powerpoint on healthy eating into our private Facebook group. At the end of the week they get a little quiz to see what they've learnt about that topic. They've learnt the importance of eating a balanced diet, the truth behind sugar and the difference between good and bad FAT!
Families across Sunderland who have signed up to Active AIM will each week receive a food bag with a healthy food recipe. They then make the meal and give us their feedback in our private Facebook group. Each meal has gone down a storm and introduced the kids to foods they have never tried before!
Last but not least our families get a weekly online workout along with some activity cards. They each received a pedometer to count their steps too. The weekly exercises ranged from Kids Zumba, Glow fitness, Yoga and Fast Fitness workouts.
