Based at Pittodrie Stadium, AFC Community Trust offer Health Walks on a Tuesday morning for a group of 24 adults over the age of 65.

Having been provided funding through the Good Change fund, the Trust has been able to engage with the elderly community, and developed a programme that keeps them active, fit, and also allows the group to meet new friends, and visit places they haven’t been for years.

Destinations have included Old Aberdeen, Aberdeen Beach Walks, Seaton Park, and also visiting some Wild Dolphins in support of the Wild Dolphin Art Project in the city. Also away days to Crathes Castle and Drum Castle for Walks and lunch has been very well received, and the group are looking forward to a guided tour of the Aberdeen Art Gallery very soon.

This group has included a couple of K&M residents from Portlethen.



For 10 weeks over summer, AFC Community trust have been getting people outdoors as much as possible. Part of the programme has been visiting different parks in the City on Thursday afternoons, and offering different activities for the elderly to keep them active in new surroundings. This also allows the group to build relationships, make new friends, and visit places they haven’t been for a number of years.

They have visited Union Terrace Gardens, Aberdeen Beach, and Duthie Park so far. The group also get fruit, water, and take part in activities such as Tennis, Walking Football, Swingball, Frisbee, and other traditional games.

AFC Community trust are keen to carry on the work with the elderly communities in Aberdeen, and are always looking to provide support and opportunity to those in most need of it.
