Fitness sessions on offer to Bay residents

17 January 2018
Fitness sessions will be available to Sanctuary Housing residents in Torbay

Residents in Torbay are invited to attend a programme of fitness sessions to kick off a healthy lifestyle in 2018 funded by Sanctuary Housing.

Different sporting activities

The classes include different activities such as street football, tai chi and Zumba. Community organisations So-Fly, Hele Village Community Association and Chelston Action Group are delivering the training at various locations around the Bay.

Love Sport

The sessions form part of Sanctuary’s wider Love Sport initiative, which is taking place in neighbourhoods around the country and aims to engage more than 2,250 residents in sport and fitness activities.

Sanctuary’s financial commitment to the five-year programme has been matched by Sport England, through National Lottery investment, to help deliver the sessions.

“Opportunities to boost fitness”

Sanctuary’s local neighbourhood partnerships manager, Lynne Roberts, said: “We are delighted to help facilitate these sessions in communities across the Bay for the benefit of residents. As well as giving them opportunities to boost their fitness, the sessions will also support residents to develop their confidence and engage with others in a positive environment.”

This project is part of Sanctuary’s Community Investment programme, supporting projects which benefit Sanctuary residents and their communities.
