We recently received a great story written by one of our clients Kathryn who spends time with her CAREGiver Julie being active and playing tennis. Sarah and Dominic visited both of them to take some great snaps of their fun day at the leisure centre.

Julie and I have been together over a year now, and I was first introduced to her in January of last year.  We used to meet on a Monday  afternoon for a few hours for Julie to take me for my  weekly shop. Over the months however I extended the time that  Julie spent with me, to give me a chance to get involved with social activities.  We are very good friends. One of the activities we take part in is the Fifty Plus Recreational at Graves Leisure Centre. Elaine teaches the class every Thursday afternoon it starts at 2.15pm and finishes at 3.45pm. For the first half an hour we do keep fit, after that we play tennis. The rest of the group play volleyball; in the past we have participated in this game, however I find it too rough. Elaine and Julie recommended we played tennis which I played when I was at school.
