Active over 50s at Haverhill fitness class do it for charity
Members of Haverhill Leisure Centre’s Keep Active Class have raised more than £100 for the Alzheimer’s Society at their annual Christmas party.
The Keep Active classes at the Ehringshausen Way centre are a social, gentle and very popular aerobic programme designed for the over 50s, combining functional strength, flexibility and suppleness exercises.
There is also a badminton and short tennis session as part of this class and more than 60 people a week take part at the centre on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Afterwards there is free coffee and biscuits for the group served on the balcony where they can sit and talk with friends.
Keep Active coordinator Anne Jendoubi presented Becky Nicholson from the Alzheimer’s Society with a cheque for £111 at Haverhill Leisure Centre last Thursday (December 17).
