We have just received a grant from Sport England! We are very grateful for the £4,844, which will go towards delivering a sports programme throughout the next year.
The sports programme will have a dedicated sports support worker, who will head up physical activities with the group. These include:
Corporate Gym membership with Studio Red (in Shirley over Sainsburys in Redcar Street).
We will need 6-8 people minimum to sign up with us to join the gym. It will cost £12.00 a month only and you can go as often as you wish. You do have to sign up with Creative Options as a member, and make sure you pay your monthly subscription.
