Local over sixties community takes to potting and ping pong

The tenants of a housing complex for the over sixties based in Cheadle Hulme have been given a helping hand by Life Leisure’s David Hopkins Foundation. The funding provided will enable the purchase of new table tennis and snooker equipment for games and social activities, much to the delight of the tenants, who will soon be able to pot a few reds and return a few shots!


Walking Football Helps Local Man Conquer Depression and Agoraphobia

A Walking Football program has had a hugely positive impact on the life of local man Mick Brannigan who has been taking part in the sessions run as part of an initiative by Life Leisure Trust, aimed at increasing the level of sporting participation amongst the local Stockport community.
