Liverpool FC Foundation Men's Health programme is partnering with local cancer support charity, Liverpool Sunflowers to launch a new venue for its Men’s Health course.

Starting on Wednesday May 13, this new course will offer weekly men’s health sessions running between 18.00-19.00 at the Liverpool Sunflowers Drop in Centre on Aigburth Road.

Run by a qualified health and fitness instructor, each session of this popular course will support men to set realistic and achievable goals towards living a healthier lifestyle.

All of the sessions are free of cost, and men of all ages (18+) and all abilities are welcome to attend.

Christine Mounsey from Liverpool FC Foundation commented: “Funded by Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group, Our Men's Health programme was first developed in 2005 to help tackle poor health in the local community. Now every year around 7,000 men from our communities benefit from the programme, and we’re delighted to be able to extend it to another new venue and part of the city in order to support even more men to take part.”

Emma Squibb, Chief Executive of Liverpool Sunflowers added: “This course isn’t just for football lovers either; it’s all about helping men to be more active and achieve a healthier lifestyle, covering a wide range of health issues including poor diet, obesity, heart disease, low physical activity levels and cancer prevention, as well as men’s mental health and wellbeing. “The sessions easily adapt to meet everyone's different levels of fitness and ability, so join us for what promises to be a great course from May 13.”
