Lincoln County Hospital To Continue Free Pilates Classes For Breast Cancer Sufferers Thanks To £3,640 Donation

A donation of £3,640 means Lincoln's County Hospital will continue to provide free pilates classes to those suffering and recovering from breast cancer for another year.

"After surgery many of the women lose some mobility in the upper part of their bodies, particularly around their arms and shoulders, because of scar tissue", said programme instructor, Jess Covely. "Regular exercise helps the women to stretch out scar tissue, allowing them to regain proper mobility and flexibility around affected areas post-operation."

Women are referred to the Pilates programme by Macmillan breast care nurses at the hospital.

The money was donated by The Frederick Andrew Convalescent Trust (Fact) to the Breast Unit's Pink Ribbon Programme and David Lloyd Lincoln will continue to provided free class space.
