From AFC Wimbledon Foundation
I’m Chloe, the new Health and Wellbeing Lead here at AFC Wimbledon Foundation.
We’re currently trying to spread the word of our Active Ageing Session, so I wanted to drop you an email with some more information to see if it appealed to anyone you have contacts with.
AFC Wimbledon Foundation are currently running our FREE Active Ageing session held at AFC Wimbledon’s Football stadium.
Our Active Ageing programme looks to support the mental and physical wellbeing of those aged 65 and over (please do get in contact if you know someone younger, but feel they would benefit from this session). As we get older it is more important than ever to exercise both our body and mind. Good health is fundamental to our quality of life. It allows us to remain independent, to work, to be involved in our local community, to maintain relationships with friends and family, and to carry out activities that give us meaning and purpose.
The session aims to:
• Lower risk of developing a long-term health condition
• Reduce risk of mental illness/cognitive decline
• Help maintain ability to carry out the tasks of daily living
• Reduced risk of falls
• Improve mood and self-esteem
• Allow participants to meet new people and socialise
Participants can enjoy indoor games such as boccia, light-hearted quizzes, chair-based exercises, socialising over light refreshments and a good old natter!
The session takes place from 10-11:30am every Thursday at the Cherry Red Records Stadium, SW17 0NR.
Carers are welcome, parking is available on site, with disabled access throughout the stadium and refreshments are provided.
For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07923234051.
It would be great to see some of your residents there if they are able to.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
