headline move more hertfordshire exercise is safe How PA can help

Macmillan Move More Herts is a positive behaviour change and physical activity programme, funded by Macmillan Cancer Support and working in partnership with YMCA, along with Stevenage Leisure, Finesse Leisure and Broxbourne Leisure trusts. The programme is designed to encourage people living with cancer to become and stay more active throughout their cancer journey.

Macmillan Move More Herts is accessible for any adult (18–80+) in Hertfordshire with a current or past history of cancer and regardless of current activity levels or comorbidities.

Participants are able to access 12 fully funded activity sessions at a centre of their choice and the service is available to those either directly or indirectly affected by cancer. Activities vary and could include:

  • Health walks
  • Supervised Gym & Exercise Classes
  • Swimming
  • Racquet Sports
  • Outdoor activities (gardening, etc)

For more information please call us on 01727 731 540 for a chat or email movemoreherts@oneymca.org and we’ll answer any questions you might have.

The service is funded by Macmillan Cancer Support for the next two years and hosted by One YMCA (formerly YMCA West & Central Herts).
