We wanted to let you know that a number of Kings Sport staff are now currently on 'furlough' under the UK Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. In line with the reduction in our team who are able to continue working, we have made some amendments to the online timetable.
We have been overwhelmed with the support of our online programmes and our team over what has been a difficult time, with over 19,000 attendees during this initial period. However, our coaching team will be back in the near future when our facilities are able to re-open.
King's Sport Move Your Mind | Online has launched, and the response has been overwhelming.
We've had a number of users and members ask if they can un-freeze their membership or support us in delivering these sessions... we want to take it one step further.
We have teamed up with our internal colleagues in the Guy's and St Thomas' and Evelina London Fundraising team during this time, and this is how we will show our support to our King's Community... thank you for being part of our programmes.
How are we supporting our hospitals during this difficult time?
As one of a very few High Consequence Infectious Disease (HCID) Treatment Centre‘s in the UK, Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Trust is at the forefront of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Our fantastic doctors and nurses, as well as all the wonderful staff across our hospitals, are working around the clock to care for those affected by the pandemic.
We have therefore launched a Guy's and St Thomas' engagement and fundraising campaign to support the well-being of our staff, patients and their families.
Great work, you responded very quickly to this difficult situation and are helping a lot of people through this difficult time with much needed exercise. Please pass my thanks to all the instructors.– Move Your Mind online participant
These sessions are completely free for anyone… yes anyone. No membership, no fee, just some space (roughly 2mx2m) some water, and a good attitude to keep your mind and body healthy during this period.
Not only will we be running Group Exercise classes during this time, but you’ll also see a number of sessions dedicated to goal setting, motivation and wellness.
