Parties link up to create an online programme that will support the older generation.
The Leeds United Foundation are pleased to announce the launch of an exciting partnership with principal sponsor of the club SBOTOP, with the two joining forces to create a new programme that will support elderly people with their physical and mental wellbeing.
The new initiative is called Fit Generations and thanks to the generous funding from SBOTOP, the company that is part of the Celton Manx Group and held in high regard across the global betting industry, supporters from our older generation in the local community will now be able to take part in regular sessions and receive support to ensure they are taking care of their mental health and wellbeing, especially given the current climate.
Sessions as part of the Fit Generations programme will be delivered online through regular video calls, until it is safe to hold them face-to-face at Elland Road, following government guidelines around the coronavirus pandemic.
There will also be social sessions involved in the project that will include physical activity as studies have shown that maintaining regular physical activity can help prevent many common diseases and exercise can also improve your overall immune function, which is important for elderly people as their immune systems are often compromised.
The coaches delivering the sessions, from the club’s official charity, will include a variety of quizzes and interactive activities in all of the sessions, that plan to start at the end of November. There will also be guest speakers invited to discuss a range of topics with the participants, giving them the chance to reminisce on the history of their beloved club.
