We had a lovely lunch today at Frankie & Bennys at Castlepoint in Bournemouth – it was great to catch up with some existing Shine members and also meet some new ones!
It was also a great opportunity to talk about our plans for the rest of the year including starting to plan our Christmas party which will be on 15th December (book the date in your diaries now!!)
The feedback on our latest idea to host a weekly, fun exercise class has also been really positive so we are moving on with our plans to do that as soon as we can! We are hoping to provide a weekly fun, mixed ability dance based exercise class which is for Shine members and their families (saves getting a babysitter!) Having a private class will mean that people will have the chance to meet up and chat to others as well as having the opportunity to exercise in a relaxed environment.
We all know that exercise is good for you, particularly after cancer treatment, but it can be difficult for people who have faced treatment including surgery, chemotherapy and or radiotherapy to have the confidence or ability to join a standard class at their local gym. By creating a class just for Shine members, we are removing a lot of the body confidence issues faced by many after cancer.
