New exercise classes for diabetes sufferers

New exercise classes for adults who suffer from, or are at risk of developing, type 2 diabetes, are being organised by Dr Andy Scott from the University of Portsmouth in partnership with two local colleges. The ‘Blood Sugar Exercise Magic’ classes are designed to provide people with diabetes an opportunity for friendly, structured exercise in a supportive environment, and a chance to interact with people with the same condition.

Each hour-long session costs £4 and will be taught by University of Portsmouth PhD researcher Samantha Meredith. They are being held at 6.00pm on Mondays and Thursdays at Buckland Community Centre, Portsmouth, and at 6.00pm on Tuesdays at St Vincent College in Gosport.
