Aquaterra Leisure is to launch a free 12-week exercise programme for people who are either living with or have recovered from cancer in Islington, north London, next month.

In addition to being free for those registered with an Islington GP, the initiative will be open to residents of neighbouring boroughs for a small charge.

The one-year pilot cancer survivorship exercise programme is being funded by NHS North London and will be offered at Sobell Leisure Centre and Highbury Pool and Fitness Centre.

Aquaterra Leisure said the initiative, which will also be held outdoors at Highbury Fields, is designed to promote physical and psychological wellbeing among its participants.

The trust is working with Macmillan Cancer Support to ensure a holistic approach, with the activities designed to manage side effects of treatment and assist in long-term recovery.

Upon completion of the 12-week programme, participants will be given an exit strategy that will include "significantly discounted" membership rates in order to remain active.

Aquaterra Leisure chief executive Antony Kildare said: "Aquaterra Leisure is at the forefront of helping local residents at a stage of their lives where support can make a significant difference to their quality of life."
