VOLUNTEERS are needed to deliver gentle exercise classes at Pendleside Hospice.

The Reedley-based charity needs volunteers to deliver seated and standing classes for half an hour to one hour per week on the day therapy unit.

Julia O’Neill, day therapy leader, said: “A basic understanding of delivering exercise is preferable but we are also very interested in hearing from trained instructors.

“We are hoping to offer a wide, diverse range of exercises so are keen to hear from people who specialise in yoga, pilates, tai chi, the Alexander technique, movement and dance or indeed anything else which will appeal to our patients and promote a sense of well being.”

Anybody interested in helping should contact the unit on 01282 440125 or e-mail julia.oneill@pendleside.org.uk with details of their relevant experience and of the days they will be available to work with patients.
