Fighting Fit win county award
Lincoln City Foundation’s Fighting Fit programme came out victors at the recent Active Lincolnshire Sport and Physical Activity awards as they were recognised in the Impact on Health category.
The Foundation’s cancer-care programme has grown exponentially in the past year, with sites opened in six different locations across Lincolnshire.
Head of healthier communities Alice Carter said: “It’s hard to find words for how much this means to everyone associated with Fighting Fit.
“I’m incredibly proud of everyone involved in running the sessions, and the participants who have made this possible.”
Fighting Fit session leader, Phillip Watson was also full of pride at how far the group has come and what they have achieved.
“Hats off to everyone involved from the people at the Foundation to the people who come week in week out to our sessions.
“This award just helps us continue to raise awareness of Fighting Fit, and it’s deserved because it is such an amazing programme.”
As part of the EFL Week of Action Lewis Montsma visited the programme earlier this week, and enjoyed his time joining in with the session and finding out about the stories of the people within Fighting Fit.
