We are pleased to once again partner with Carers UK to ensure our leisure centres are inclusive to Carers and are supporting Carers UK’s ‘Get Elfy’ campaign. The following details the campaign they are running:

Sign up to Get Elfy this Christmas!

Join Carers UK’s jolly movement challenge this December from the comfort of your home. No need for fancy equipment, all you need is your holiday spirit and a dash of enthusiasm. The Get Elfy Advent Calendar will provide you with 24 days of fun, festive movement videos to keep you active through the season.

Each merry mover will be entered into a daily prize draw for the chance to win a range of elf and fitness related prizes.

All fitness levels welcome: each activity video will include adaptations so that everyone can take part!
