Help older people by becoming instructor

Age UK Northumberland is inviting older people in the county to train as volunteer exercise tutors to help their peers enjoy a healthy and active later life.

People aged over 50 in the Alnwick and Berwick area can enrol on the Exercise to Music Course. No previous instructor training is required.

The course will provide the skills necessary for volunteers to deliver Exercise to Music classes to older people in the local communities.

The demand for classes is enormous and at the moment there are not enough trained instructors to meet that demand.

The free training involves attending one session a week for 15 weeks. It will be held in the Costello Centre Alnwick, starting Thursday, June 26.

To find out more about the training, call Anne Robinson on 01670 784837.

The project is supported by Big Lottery Fund
