LEAP Springs into Action

Charity supports older people with online activities during lockdown

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 people’s interests.

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.”

All the activities can be booked through Eventbrite and full details can be found at www.leap-project.co.uk/spring-activities
