Regular branch activities

The branch is keen to provide services and activities to help people with MS. If you would like to be involved in helping us or have ideas for new initiatives, please contact the secretary, Margaret.

Yoga

  • Every Tuesday from 2.30pm-3.30pm
  • Cost: £3
  • Location: Kendal Leisure Centre, Burton Road

People affected by MS and their carers are welcome to turn up to this sociable group for people of all abilities, including those who use wheelchairs.

The class is informal and friendly and all participants are encouraged to work at their own capacity.

Swimming

  • Every Wednesday from 6.15 - 7.15pm
  • Location: Sandgate Hydrotherapy Pool, Sandylands Road, Kendal, Cumbria LA9 6JG

People with MS are welcome to join others in the pool. The regular physiotherapist organises exercises but you can go along and 'do your own thing'. There is a hoist to help people in and out of the pool but if you require assistance with dressing please take someone along with you.

Dance and movement

  • Every Wednesday from 10.30 - 11.30am
  • Location: Kirkland Hall, Kirkland, Kendal, Cumbria LA9 5AF
