Keep Active

We can all agree that 2020 was a difficult year – and of course many of the challenges may be around for some time yet. Nevertheless, the start of 2021 offers us the opportunity to focus on the things we can control, from our diet and nutrition, to staying active, in order to stay in the best of health.

With that in mind our Fundraising team have put together some fitness ideas to get you moving, and keep off those lockdown pounds whilst raising vital funds to Keep Queenscourt in Service.
