Sessions in a town near you!
The Magna Vitae community team deliver a range of programmes for our communities. Take a look at some of the most recent Magna Vitae community programmes below:
The award winning Still Me Dementia support project, funded by Louth and District Hospice Limited, delivered free social activity sessions aimed at improving the experiences of those affected by Dementia and other life-altering conditions.
These popular sessions, which have been enjoyed by over 350 individuals since November 2016, include a healthy dose of tea, biscuits and laughter, alongside a variety of accessible cultural and physical activities, ranging from new-age kurling and seasonal crafts, to singing and seated exercise!

Fitness Food and Friends
Fitness, Food and Friends was a project commissioned by Talk. Eat. Drink. (T.E.D.) which is a Big Lottery funded project.
T.E.D. worked with Magna Vitae to reduce isolation across East Lindsey and is designed to empower and connect individuals, helping create sustainable change in communities.
Fitness, Food and Friends saw people aged over 50 getting out and about, becoming more involved in social activities and feeling positive about their future.

A Community Health Activity Project commissioned by T.E.D. in East Lindsey – CHAPS provided free activities, support and opportunities to meet new people for local men over 50. Through this programme of innovative sessions, the Magna Vitae Community team ultimately reduced loneliness and isolation for local men living in Mablethorpe and Skegness.

Tracey is the Lifestyle and Partnerships lead for Magna Vitae and has delivered and co-ordinated health improvement programmes for over 9 years. Tracey is passionate about nutrition, exercise and wellbeing and is motivated by empowering people who would otherwise not be active.
“There are a whole host of individuals out there who, for one reason or another, live quite isolated lives. Through our projects they can relax – it’s about being normal again. Our ‘Still Me’ sessions also provide a chance for carers and relatives to connect, which is vitally important.”
Marko studied Food Technology at university then worked in a food chemical and micro lab, where his interests in the benefits of nutrition, and how food can help people live better, grew. Marko worked for Food for Life with East Lindsey District Council before joining Magna Vitae, where he delivers our ‘Fitness, Food and Friends’ project.
“My role allows me to meet a great diversity of people, listen to their stories and see the big difference our projects make to their lives. My own life experiences have helped me to identify with these different people and to better understand the issues they may be facing.”
