About Move More
At Move More, we know that when you’re living with and beyond cancer even a small amount of gentle exercise can help reduce your fatigue and leave you feeling better. That’s why Macmillan Cancer Support has developed a range of classes in your area.
We understand you may be a little nervous about building up your activity levels, so we have people on hand to show you the ropes and help you relax. Our motivators have all benefited from our programme and know exactly what you are going through. Together, they work alongside our instructors making sure you get the most out of your class.
With Move More walking groups, Gentle Movement, gardening and circuit classes, our Good Move team will help you choose an activity that’s right for you.
Cost: FREE! For more information about Move More, call the Good Move team today on 0141 287 0241.
