Foundation launches physical activity sessions in partnership with Parkinson’s UK

Very soon, we will begin physical activity sessions for people living with Parkinson’s.

In partnership with Parkinson’s UK, Headingley Stadium will host weekly meetings for people to improve and maintain their physical activity levels through accessible, fun and engaging rugby themed sessions.

Participants will also have the opportunity to engage in a social opportunity and refreshment in the Keith Howard Community Hub after their session.

Partnership and Projects Manager, Ben Berry, said: “We’re so excited to begin our provision of accessible and fun rugby based physical activity sessions for people who have Parkinson’s.”

“The funding will allow Leeds Rhinos Foundation to flourish in our overarching aims to support communities into developing long-term regular physical activity which will in turn, improve their health and wellbeing.”

“The project will also provide the opportunity for individuals to socialise in a space following their activity and facilitate opportunities for people to engage with our club and foundation outside of just physical activity too.”

The 18-week programme will feed into our regular weekly physical activity maintenance sessions held both at Headingley Stadium and Bartercard Training Complex.
