Category: Walking to Health | Author: Shirley He

52 people registered to attend the event and 82%, 41 people, turned up on the day. The 18%, 9 people, who did not turn up were aged above 70+.

The morning was clear and dry and the sun was out. A coach was hired and two staff from CHIC took the elderly to Stamford Park in Stalybridge for a walk. The elderly came from the Chinese community in Manchester.
They all walked through the park, enjoyed seeing the trees and plants, and watching the ducklings playing in the icy pond. They were chatting and laughing away, enjoying themselves.

After they had walked for one and half hours, they were taken to the Glamorous Restaurant for a late lunch. The trip was very successful and the verbal feedback was very positive that all the elderly had thoroughly enjoyed the walk.

Of the 41 older people, 83% (34) were female.
61%, 35 people, were aged over 70+; 32% (13) were aged between 60-69; and 7%, (3) were aged 50-59.

66% (27) of the elderly came from different parts of Manchester including the City Centre, Cheetham Hill, Moston, Ardwick and Rusholme etc. 34%, 14 elderly, came from Greater Manchester areas including Rochdale, Oldham, Tameside, Sale, Stockport and Salford etc. 31%, 16 elderly, came from Yours Tung Sing Housing Association.
