Case Study - Heather Laing - Nordic Walking
Heather has taken part in Active Newcastle sessions for the past 3 years. She has attended many of our sessions including Yoga, Tai Chi and Nordic Walking
She decided to become more active after a serious accident 10 years ago which left her needing metal plates in her right leg. Heather was determined to become active and get out of the house.
She came across our Park Lives programme a number of years ago and has tried many activities and thoroughly enjoys our Nordic walking programme. The sense of freedom, physical wellbeing and the social element of the group has motivated Heather to keep going. She has inspired others to come along to the session too and has also continued to Nordic walk outside of the structured sessions, visiting Gibside and the Lake District with her poles.
The wide range of Active Newcastle sessions have allowed Heather to try new things and meet people from different backgrounds that she wouldn’t normally meet
