Aurora is a cancer charity providing support in the local area for people living with cancer or a long-term health condition. Why not visit the Heritage Hub in the heart of the Old Library Building and reminisce through oral and virtual history displays, objects from bygone days and share memories of Worksop and the surrounding area or look for a bargain in the well stocked charity shop followed by a home-cooked meal in art deco ‘Valerie’s Tearooms’?

Spotlight on…. The Curve

September saw the opening of Aurora’s new gym / fitness space in The Curve.

Exercise is daunting at the best of times but even more so when you are living with health conditions.

At Aurora, their aim is to promote and support wellbeing during a cancer diagnosis, treatment and beyond. They will be offering specific fitness sessions to people living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis which will be delivered by a fully qualified cancer exercise specialist. Each client will receive a programme that is specific to their condition and needs.
In addition, Aurora will also be offering a general women’s only session and a general mixed session.

All sessions will be subject to the necessary health screening to ensure the safety of the individual. If you are unsure, please consult your GP prior to commencing any exercise.

Cancer-specific gym package: initial consultation and two sessions free. All subsequent sessions £5.00 each. General women’s only and public sessions are £5.00 per session.
