Success at our First GOGA Open Day!

On Saturday 7th May we held our first GOGA Open Day at Five Rivers Health & Wellbeing Centre. The aim of the day was to promote GOGA, inviting people to come along to learn more about the programme and have a go at some of the sessions we deliver, which include walking football, pickleball, tai chi and seated exercises.

The atmosphere in the sports hall was buzzing, with lots of laughter, banter and encouragement from everyone to get involved. There was even an edge of competitive spirit within the pickleball games!

One lady who bought her son along to the event said how much she enjoyed doing some activity and that to be able to do something like this rather than wait for her son to swim each week would be ideal. She also loved the concept of GOGA and the fact its inclusive for everyone!

The day was also a chance to recruit some new volunteers to the programme. Having volunteers involved with GOGA will provide many new and exciting opportunities, they bring new capacities, abilities and perspectives. We believe that everyone should be able to contribute as a volunteer making it as inclusive as possible.

If you are interested in finding out a more about GOGA and getting involved as either a participant, volunteer or both then please contact / 07786221235. We would love to hear from you.
