LEAP into spring with
activities for everyone
LEAP is supporting older people in South Lanarkshire during
lockdown with a programme of online activities ranging from bingo
to Spanish classes.
The programme starts on March 15, with something to suit most
As well as old favourites bingo and Spanish, people can choose
from new groups such as seated keep fit, a men’s newspaper group,
houseplant hospital and a repair session among others.
Taylor McKeown, LEAP’s activity development officer, said: “We’re
really pleased to offer all these activities for spring.
“We know a lot of people are struggling through lockdown not being
able to meet family and friends, so a lot of our programme is about
talking to people as much as the activities themselves.
“As well as our free activities such as bingo and our weekly quiz we
have some exciting new classes such as our art salon, which gives
artists professional support on individual projects.
“We hope the programme appeals to lots of people and helps boost
spirits during the lockdown.”
