Who provides this?
Macmillan Move More East Lothian is a physical activity programme for people living with and beyond cancer across the county to become, and stay, more physically active and improve health throughout their cancer experience.
Move More is a 12-week programme with ongoing support for up to a year, delivered by enjoyleisure, in partnership with East Lothian Council and Macmillan Cancer Support.
You can apply to join or be referred by a healthcare professional, and fully-trained Cancer Rehabilitation exercise instructors and volunteers then facilitate the activities both in-person and online, ensuring they are tailored and at a pace that’s right for you. The programme can help to build confidence, balance and strength, in a fun and supportive environment. The programme offers a range of activities, including:
• gym/circuit-based classes
• gentle movement classes (Tai Chi / Qigong fusion with meditation)
• health and wellbeing walks
• gardening groups
For people living with cancer, taking part in physical activity before, during and after cancer treatment can play a huge part in enabling them to take back control, prevent and manage some of the effects of treatment such as fatigue, depression and risks to heart health.
