Hospice class success

Written byMARK MCKAY

AN exercise class at a hospice which aims to improve the lives of those living with multiple sclerosis will continue after a successful 12-week trial.

The class held at the St Giles Hospice in Whittington aims to improve the physical, social and emotional wellbeing of those who take part.

Jane Taylor runs the class with two volunteers and uses chair and standing-based exercises.

Multiple sclerosis is a neurological illness which affects about 100,000 people in the UK.

Symptoms might include fatigue, vision problems and difficulties with walking.

St Giles Hospice is a registered charity which offers high-quality specialist care free of charge for people living with cancer and other serious illnesses, as well as providing support for their families and carers.

Anyone who would like to take part in the class should call 01543 434536.
