We recently hosted our very first Meet and Move event at Maggie's West London. The day focused around giving young adults with and living beyond cancer the opportunity to connect with others, take part in yoga and group exercise sessions, as well as hearing from some inspirational experts.

The day was attended by 50, focused on workshops run by BBC's Mind Over Marathon Chevy Rough, Life after Cancer coach Steph and special guest Dr Hazel Wallace. Everyone got stuck straight into each of the the activity sessions, catching up with familiar faces and getting to know new ones.

It was wonderful to see so many happy faces at the end of the day, with people saying that the day had inspired them, given them some new ideas and left them feeling more confident about exercising.

"Meet & Move was an amazing day. It was great to meet other people my age who are struggling with the fatigue and lack of confidence when it comes to exercise after treatment. I felt a lot more confident after the day. I met some really lovely people too who just get it. Looking forward to more meet ups." Meet and Move attendee

The day was an incredible success and we're now very excited for the future Meet and Move events we will be hosting!

We are extremely grateful to NEXT for contributing £5000 towards our Meet & Move programme of activity.
