PenActive is our ‘Youth Club for Older People’. It’s a session we have designed to bring people together to socialise and keep fit too. It’s every Tuesday at 1:30-3:30pm and is suitable for people aged 60+ who want to build/maintain their fitness in a friendly and supportive session. We charge £3 per session, and this money goes towards paying the instructors for the different sessions we offer each week, and towards room hire. Please TAG and SHARE this post with anyone you think may benefit from the sessions, as the group is always looking for new members.
Our fantastic volunteer Louise recently approached the local shops to see if anyone would be able to donate some refreshments to the group, to ensure our attendees are well looked after! We were delighted to receive donations of tea, coffee, biscuits, snacks etc from both Tesco and Penistone Co-op, which will keep even the thirstiest PenActivers satiated for months!
The social time which takes place over a cuppa and a snack is just as important as the physical exercise, as we’ve all been isolated more over the last year’s lockdown periods, and we know what a difference a chat can make.
Thank you Tesco and Co-op! And as always, a massive ‘thank you’ to the volunteers who make the session possible- Louise, Helen and Alison! You are all superstars.
