Pennine Mencap runs a variety of different services focused on health and well-being. We aim to provide fun, informative sessions to improve our Service Users' general health
WOW Club (Walk or Wheel) ties in closely with Health Club – following the Monday morning dancersize and a nutritious lunch, our group goes out and about exploring the green spaces of Oldham and the surrounding areas. We leave Pennine Mencap HQ after lunch and make our way to a local park or beauty spot, either on foot or by public transport, should we choose to go further afield.
Our regular Walking Group spots include Alexandra Park, Daisy Nook, and Chadderton Hall Park, but we end up all around and about the borough! Last year, our Pennine Mencap walking team undertook a Halloween-themed sponsored walk around Ladybower Reservoir, where we raised over £500 for the charity.
