ActivLives runs its largest ever seated exercise session at Ipswich Town Hall
More than 100 people came together to put their hands in the air and celebrate the success of a charity project.
ActivLives hosted its largest ever seated exercise session at Ipswich Town Hall this week to mark the end of its year-long Make and Move falls prevention scheme.
The town’s deputy mayor, Bill Quinton, opened the event followed by Lindsay Bennett, ActivHub manager, leading the age-friendly workout to 1980’s hit, When the Going Gets Tough.
Julie Stokes, CEO of the charity, said: “It was fantastic to see so many of our members attend and people who came to find out about the organisation and our activities.
“Everything we do is to support people to keep active, to keep connected with their community and provide opportunities for learning and volunteering.”
