Macmillan East Ren
We provide gentle physical activity and information and support to anyone in East Renfrewshire affected by cancer.
While we’re unable to offer face-to-face provision during the pandemic, both our our cancer information and support service and our Move More programme of physical activity can be accessed remotely.
In response to the pandemic, our trained Cancer Information and Support volunteers now provide a friendly listening ear for anyone affected by cancer over the phone and via video calls. We also refer and signpost to other relevant services in the local community and beyond.
Our Move More volunteers deliver a gentle movement class via Zoom every Thursday. After the class there’s a chance to have a coffee and a chat afterwards. We also have an online circuits class, delivered by our exercise specialist, on Wednesday evenings.
When Covid restrictions allow we will resume our weekly information and support drop-in sessions at Barrhead Foundry (Monday and Wednesday mornings 10.30 - 12.30) and at Clarkston Library (Fridays 10.30-2.30), alongside our Move More programme of gentle movement classes, a circuits class, and cancer-friendly walking groups in libraries and community settings across East Renfrewshire.
Macmillan East Ren is a partnership between Macmillan Cancer Support and East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure, set up to provide gentle physical activity and information and support to anyone in East Renfrewshire affected by cancer.
