Help Forever Young Transform the Lives of the Elderly

Dear Members,

 KDSL is in partnership with Parkour Dance Company to host a wonderful transformative project aimed at well-being and fitness for older people called Forever Young. The centre provides a free studio for this project that was piloted in the winter. It was so successful we want to make it a regular course and build a local group.

 Forever Young fuses parkour/freerunning with dance and yoga for well-being, fitness and performance purposes. It brings together local senior people in Southwark to play, explore and reconnect to the environment in a FREE safe and structured weekly class led by qualified professionals.

 

Sadly it may not be able to continue, during the pilot everyone worked for free but to make it ongoing there needs to be some funding (watch the video below to find out what for). This is where you could help us transform lives, we would be very grateful if you could donate or support this non-for-profit community project to allow it to continue.

 

PLEASE WATCH OUR 3MIN VIDEO ON THE LINK BELOW TO SEE THE PROJECT IN ACTION AND HOW YOU CAN HELP.

We are the only venue in the world hosting a project like this and it would be a shame for it to stop. If you would like to learn more or attend the project yourself (which aims to start the last week of April) please email or phone to book. We would be grateful for any kindness.
