Do you enjoy being active and making connections with people? If so, you may be interested in getting involved with a new project in Leeds.

Whether it’s walking, gardening, dancing, playing sports, running, cycling, martial arts or swimming – if you know that being active is good for your health and wellbeing, and can be a great way to connect with others, you already have loads to offer.

Coordinated by local charity Touchstone, the Mover&Shakers project aims to harness people-power to help make Leeds the most active city in the UK.

Mover&Shakers will be supported to use their ideas, and their networks, to encourage others in Leeds to move more and be active. Anyone who signs up as a Mover&Shaker will be offered training opportunities, volunteer support and a welcome pack with information and goodies

If you have ideas for how people in your local area could move more, you’d like to encourage others to be active, or you’re simply willing to share information on opportunities to be active in your area, you could be a Mover&Shaker.

Check out what Mover&Shakers have been up to in Leeds on Facebook and Twitter.

Find out more and sign up for a welcome pack at the Get Set Leeds website, or contact the Mover&Shaker coordinator Sarah So on 07824481269. You can also email Sarah at
