Step 4 -
Make your steps count for charity

Over the past ten years, we have delivered a self-funded health and wellbeing programme that supports people living with long-term health conditions such as cancer, dementia, diabetes, COPD and cardiac incidents.

Now, we have a dedicated fund – the Fife Health and Wellbeing Fund – to support this very valuable and effective programme.

Thanks to a dedicated team of highly-qualified instructors, we deliver 91 health classes a week, with 4,000 participants attending classes to enjoy the health and wellbeing benefits experienced by getting active, as well as meeting others who are living with similar conditions to their own.  We can do more when people give more.

Below we have some examples of where your donation could be spent.

  • £10 could cover a customer telephone call or Whatsapp video call catch up
  • £25  could cover a live Zoom class, a walking session or a face to face class, or a YouTube home workout video
  • £50  could cover the cost of provisions for a weekly social cafe for 1 month
  • £100  could cover the cost of giving a class of 15 people Therabands to enable them to do strength exercises at home 

 

Here's what your fundraising donation supports:

Forever Young

Jane Robertson, Coaltown of Balgonie

"After a short time, I began to enjoy the class and started to feel better – my health, my mood and motivation improved so much. I began to lose weight which was a real boost and it gave me the confidence to join a weight-loss programme. Active Options 2 has really helped my fitness levels and strength – it’s unbelievable. A week ago I was told by the cardiology team that I no longer need to take medication which was great news."

 

Conditioning

Chris Leivesley, Lumpinnans

"The diagnosis of Parkinson’s was a complete shock, it literally happened overnight. The instructors for both the classes I attend are fantastic, they are knowledgeable and motivational – I look forward to the classes every week. I feel so much better after the classes, the feel-good factor lasts for a while after. It’s not just the physical benefits I experience, I really like getting out and meeting other people who are experiencing similar issues – it’s a real boost to my morale and emotional wellbeing."

 

Joyce Kelly, High Valleyfield

"I’ve been coming to the café for around six weeks and love the interaction with others. It’s great that every week we have a different activity to try out - I enjoyed the exercise session and it does make you feel good."

Betty McIvor, Markinch

"I now come along the class once a week. I enjoy the company and it helps to give me confidence in dealing with everyday life. All the instructors are really cheery and positive and make you feel great about yourself."

 

Thank you!
