FORGOT YOUR DETAILS?

Fit Start

Fit Start is a healthy living club for people with a learning disability, which takes place on Wednesdays, from 4 to 6pm. The club night is held at Foresters Hall on Meeting Street in Ramsgate and is currently free to all, thanks to a Heart Research UK and Subway Healthy Heart Grant.

At Fit Start, attendees can:

  • find out about how to lead a healthy lifestyle,
  • try new foods,
  • get the body moving through sport and exercise, and
  • monitor their weight, heart rate and blood pressure.

The club is led by a qualified training instructor from Motiv8 Sports and has already proven to help adults with a learning disability reduce their weight, heart-rate and blood pressure.

Fit Start takes place in 10-week blocks, with the next course starting on Wednesday 15th November 2017.

For more information, contact us via email, or phone 01843-224482.

Focus on: Fitness

We spoke to our Fit Start Ambassador, David Benson, to get an insight into his healthy lifestyle and how attending the club has improved his well being.
The Morrisons Foundation has kindly donated £5,000 to East Kent Mencap. The donation will be used to run a health and wellbeing project focused on healthy eating and physical activity, helping people with a learning disability to become more independent and lead healthier lifestyles.

Triple Threat take centre stage

Our talented drama group, Triple Threat, performed their annual show at the Theatre Royal in Margate last Sunday 30th July.
