To celebrate the work of our official charity, Leeds Rhinos Foundation, each Friday we will highlight some of the work they do to help change the lives of people in our community using the power of sport.  This week we will look at the charity’s Rhinos Active Social group which comes under the charity’s health provision.

Rhinos Active Social is a weekly group for over 55s that is supported by Morrison’s Foundation and is free to attend.  The group meet regularly on Tuesdays at the Cardigan Centre in Headingley and there are plans to expand the service to more areas in the city in the new year.

The project was initially introduced to tackle social isolation and engage the older community in activities and is run by Leeds Rhinos Foundation staff, who regularly invite guests to run unique sessions such as tai chi, beginner’s yoga, walking netball and indoor rounders.

Built on the premise of a friendly, casual atmosphere the aim of the project is simple – to engage the older community in activities to improve their physical, mental and social well-being by taking part in regular activities.

Sessions currently run every Tuesday 10am-12:30pm at the Cardigan Centre.  For more information please contact on Laura.buckle@leedsrhinosfoundation.org
