Wow! is a project for women in Leeds who are seeking asylum to support and encourage each other to be more physically active. The project focuses on building friendships, getting moving, enjoying the outdoors and using music and dance to deliver fun activities accessible to women of any ability and fitness level.
Women who have attended Wow! will:
Be more active
Have improved mental well-being
Feel less isolated
Have created new friendship groups
Support with transport to and from sessions
The funding for Wow! comes to an end in March, and without additional funding we will not be able to continue providing this group.
In a bid to raise awareness of the importance of physical health, its positive impact on mental well-being and to raise £10,000 to continue this work, the WHM staff team will be walking an incredible 1 MILLION steps every week for 8 weeks - starting 17th November.
Every £1 donated will be match funded by the National Trust Local Action Fund. To support us and make a donation, please click the link below.
