A project helping people with arthritis to keep active and a call for more volunteers to help is to hold an event in Newtown next week.

Arthritis Care will be hosting a Get Active event at The Elephant and Castle Hotel on  15 May.

"As well as providing information and advice about the project to people with arthritis, we are hoping the event will highlight the volunteer roles we have on offer by demonstrating the activities we would like to establish in the area," said Helen Saxon-Jones of Arthritis Care.

"Activity volunteers will be provided full training and qualifications in their chosen activity and continuing support from myself and the Get Active team. Arthritis Care (which is now part of Arthritis Research UK) is an established volunteer network and can provide many opportunities and experiences to people who offer their time and skills."

The event will include activity taster/demonstration sessions, including 

Chair Based Exercise — 11.45am

Tai Chi for Arthritis — 12.30pm

Boccia — 1.15pm

Members of the Get Active team will be available to answer questions throughout the event.

For further information contact Helen Saxon-Jones, Email: or telephone 01691 779167.
