Get ready to lace up your shoes, stretch those muscles, and feel the power of movement during Mental Health Awareness Week from Monday 13th to Sunday 19th May 2024!

This year, we’re focusing on the theme of “Moving for your mental health,” and we have a whole line up of activities designed to help you incorporate movement into your daily routine.

A highlight of the week is our series of free organised walks around the valley. Join us as we explore the beautiful scenery while promoting mental well-being through physical activity. Whether you prefer a leisurely stroll or a brisk hike, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. – Click here to view our Rossendale Walks

Looking for more personalised support? Our empowering one-on-one coaching sessions, “Empowering You,” are available for free throughout the week and across the valley. Our experienced Health Coach Jo is here to guide you on your journey to better mental health, offering support, encouragement, and practical strategies for incorporating movement into your life. To book, please email memberships@rltrust.co.uk with your preferred time slot.

For those who love a challenge, don’t miss our “Let’s Move Miles for Mental Health” fitness challenge. Whether you’re hitting the gym or hitting the slopes, the goal is simple: complete as many miles as you can! It’s a fun and engaging way to stay active while supporting your mental well-being.

On Saturday, we’re inviting everyone (members & non-members) to join us for class taster sessions at all three of our facilities (Adrenaline-Haslingden, Marl Pits – Rawtenstall and Pioneer – Bacup). Come along and try out our range of fitness classes for free! From Yoga to body conditioning, there’s something to suit everyone. Discover the full class taster timetable by clicking here.

But that’s not all! We’re also hosting a coffee morning at The Ashcroft. We’ve teamed up with Lancashire Library for an exciting outreach program. The library will showcase what our local libraries have to offer, from books to community events. It’s a great opportunity to relax, socialise, and discover the resources available to support your well-being.

Remember, physical activity isn’t just about improving your body—it’s also about boosting your mood and reducing stress. So, let’s come together as a community to move for our mental health during Mental Health Awareness Week.

Join us for a week of activity, support, and empowerment as we prioritise our well-being together.
