Kick Cancer

After the success of the 6-week Kick Cancer pilot programme that took place in May 2018, Shrewsbury Town in the community are launching their new 10 week Kick Cancer programme. They are working in partnership with Lingen Davies Cancer Fund, and have created a multi-sport programme helping those living with or recovering from Cancer in Shropshire. 

The sessions will consist of different group multi-sport exercise sessions followed by a social session.

Speaking of the programme, Naomi Atkin, Executive Officer at Lingen Davies, said 

I am really pleased that Lingen Davies Cancer Fund and Shrewsbury Town in the Community are working together on this exciting pilot project.”

“Physical activity can be really beneficial to people during and after their cancer treatment, and this is a great opportunity for people in our community to get back to fitness or try out a new activity to help their recovery.”

“Lingen Davies is the only local charity supporting active treatment and recovery for people affected by cancer in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and Mid Wales; quality of life beyond cancer is a key theme of our £1.25 million 40th Anniversary Appeal, and we’re excited about the contribution that the Kick Cancer programme will make to this.”

Our next Kick Cancer programme will run from Wednesday 25th September – Wednesday 4th December. See below for times and locations.

  • Shrewsbury Kick Cancer – Wednesdays 2 pm – 4 pm at Reech Community Hub
  • Ludlow Kick Cancer – Wednesdays – 12 pm – 2 pm at Ludlow Football Stadium
