Wellbeing activities

We host a range of wellbeing activities which are open to anyone affected by cancer in Norfolk and surrounding areas.

From nutrition to exercise, there’s an array of options to explore. Some classes take place online via Zoom, others are in person with the option to socialise afterwards with people going through similar experiences.
