YMCA Club now has over 900 members over the age of 60 with the Older Adults programme providing an ideal space to improve your wellbeing and forge meaningful friendships in the process.
Declan Duncan, Community Programmes Manager at YMCA Club, said: “Members often initially join to use the pool or the gym, but they are also able to meet new people and crucially learn new ways to improve their health and wellbeing. Since I started in this role ten years ago, it’s been gratifying to see new friendships being forged and members’ confidence improving through our social events.
“I think it’s really important, especially in the later stages in life, that people are still building new friendships and connecting. That’s why I’m so proud that this programme is able to bring together the mind, body and spirit which encompasses YMCA Club and the charity as a whole.”
Our members can also broaden their cultural and intellectual horizons by taking part in weekends away (recent destinations include Hayling Island), or joining one of our free, informative history walks through the City of London.
