Last week our Forever Active participants and Traineeships enjoyed a day out on the sunny coast of Filey.

Forever Active is a physical activity programme for people over 60, combining gentle exercise to boost balance stability and strength with sociable get-togethers.

Our Traineeship programme provides young people aged 16 Р25, with the chance to gain real experience in an area they would like to work in, develop key employability skills and enhance their CV.

The two groups, plus staff, drove up by coach bright and early to the small town of North Yorkshire.

The day began at Hunmanby Hall, as both groups showed off their talents with mixed ages playing badminton, foot tennis and even some trampolining.

It was then time to relax on the beach and enjoy a portion of fish and chips.

The fun didn’t end there, as the participants and staff played a game of bingo on the coach back to Derby.

Luke Wilkson, Sports Team Leader said:

“It was a fantastic day for both the older and younger generations – they were able to share stories, participate in sports and have a memorable day at the seaside.”
