“I’ve done things I never thought I’d accomplish.”
Penny has accessed exercise classes as well as creative arts groups. She said: “I just find it totally supportive and everything I have done with Peace Hospice Care has made such a difference to my life. I’ve done things I never thought I’d accomplish. Going to the group exercise class at Everyone Active is very rewarding. I like to keep active and got involved with a gym when I was having chemotherapy and it’s nice to do all of that again. The exercise is so beneficial and I love being involved with the group as we all get on so well.
The groups here have such a lovely atmosphere and I’ve met some really lovely people here who are now good friends. The Hospice is a big part of my life. I’ve always enjoyed getting creative and I love all of the writing I’m doing now in groups – I’m writing poetry and doing art. It’s all very fulfilling and coming here has helped me develop existing interests and do things I never thought I would be able to do. “
