February 2021 COVID-19 Update

Throughout this miserable winter lockdown, Hodan has been helping its service users to boost their mental wellbeing through our Zumba on Zoom project, which now has over 40 regular attendees!  We recently checked in with them to find out how it’s going, and you can read some of their feedback here.  

We’re grateful to This Girl Can (an initiative by Sport England and the National Lottery) and the Postcode Neighbourhood Trust for vital funding to support the next phase of this project.  We’ll be creating new classes in  Chair-Based Exercise and low-intensity Zumba specifically for older women and those with disabilities. 

As part of this project we’ll be hosting a livestreamed digital festival to recruit volunteers who can carry out tailored outreach and digital literacy training to older women from diverse ethnic backgrounds – especially those whose first language isn’t English.  We want to help them learn to use the Internet, reconnect with friends and family, and get active!  

If you’re interested in volunteering please contact us, or watch this space for more information on our festival… and if you’d like to support our work and help us make inclusive exercise accessible to more people, you can make a secure donation here.
