Move More East Lothian

Move More East Lothian is a physical activity programme which offers a range of activities, across the county, designed for people living with, and beyond, cancer.

As part of Macmillan Cancer Support’s national campaign to support people living with cancer to become, and stay, more physically active and improve health throughout their cancer experience, Move More East Lothian is a physical activity referral programme, delivered by enjoy leisure, in partnership with East Lothian Council and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Fully trained exercise instructors and volunteers facilitate the activities, ensuring they are tailored and at a pace that’s right for the participant, helping to build confidence, balance and strength, in a fun and supportive environment. The programme offers a range of activities, including;

  • Gym/Circuits-based classes
  • Gentle Movement classes (Tai Chi / Qigong fusion with meditation)
  • Health & Wellbeing walks
  • Gardening groups

Taking part in physical activity during and after cancer treatment can play a huge part in enabling you to take back control, prevent and manage some of the effects of treatment, such as fatigue, depression and risks to your heart health and many people tell us that it helps them to feel more like their old self.

Referrals can be made into the programme through any healthcare professional or by self-referral. To find out more about More More East Lothian, please get in touch or download and complete the editable referral form in the ‘Download’ section and send to:
