Move More – volunteers required

Hello!

Can you help spread the word?

Macmillan Move More East Lothian are looking for Volunteers to help support people living with and beyond cancer across the county to become, and stay, more physically active as Gentle Movement Class Leads, Motivators and Buddy Walkers. Full training and support is provided 🙂

If you or someone you know have a couple of hours a month to dedicate to helping others, please see full details on the enjoyleisure Macmillan Move More East Lothian webpage, email movemore@enjoyleisure.com or check out and share our advert on Facebook and Instagram.

Move More East Lothian is a 12 week physical activity programme (see schedule attached), delivered by enjoyleisure, in partnership with East Lothian Council and Macmillan Cancer Support. Individuals with a cancer experience can apply to join themselves or be referred by a healthcare professional, and fully trained Cancer Rehabilitation exercise instructors and volunteers then facilitate the activities both in-person and online, ensuring they are tailored and at a pace that’s right for the participant, helping to build confidence, balance and strength, in a fun and supportive environment. The programme offers a range of activities, including;

  • Gym/Circuits-based classes
  • Gentle Movement classes (Tai Chi / Qigong fusion with meditation)
  • Health & Wellbeing walks
  • Gardening groups

For people living with cancer, taking part in physical activity before, during and after cancer treatment can play a huge part in enabling them to take back control, prevent and manage some of the effects of treatment such as fatigue, depression and risks to heart health, and many people tell us that it helps them to feel more like their old self.

Please feel free to share the attached poster, programme leaflet and activity schedule with anyone you think would be interested in volunteering or joining the programme as a participant.

Thank you!
