Move together this October with dance centres support for woman impacted by Cancer

As part of our community conversations, we attended Move Together is a free dance centred support group for woman impacted by cancer.

We met Sam Lawrence who is a Dance Centred Practitioner and runs the free sessions supported by dance artist Miranda Howard.

The free sessions are funded by People’s Health Trust using money raised by Health Lottery South West.

At the sessions we met with Mary Lynes, Mary (Maz) Lynes and Sally Hilton who regularly attend the sessions as part of their cancer recovery.
