Walthamstow Wellbeing Walking Group

Are you looking to get active and meet others who have finished cancer treatment in Walthamstow? We are excited to bring you a guided gentle wellbeing walk and talk group in the beautiful Walthamstow wetlands.

The Wellbeing walking group provides gentle, low-impact exercise and a dedicated safe space for individuals who have finished cancer treatment to walk and talk without fear of judgment. This is a fun opportunity to get active at your own pace whilst meeting other adults who have finished cancer treatment.

We meet once a month, for 1 hour, to walk in the Walthamstow Wetlands with others who have finished cancer treatment.

Click the booking link below to join our next walk on 8th June at 11am.

Why join the Wellbeing Walking group? The aim is that our free and friendly wellbeing walks will help reduce social isolation, improve mental wellbeing and help individuals post cancer treatment to have the confidence to become and stay more active by building in regular walking in their lives.

Attendees are invited to join a supportive walking WhatsApp group once they have signed up.
