Northern Ireland Workshops

Macmillan logoOn 2nd December 2014, Macmillan facilitated a Physical Activity Workshop at the Dunsilly Hotel in Antrim, Northern Ireland. The purpose of the workshop was to highlight progress to date in Northern Ireland in relation to Cancer and Physical Activity, to outline Macmillan’s strategic direction in relation to Cancer and Physical Activity, and to ascertain the views and opinions of key stakeholders. It is important to spread the physical activity and cancer message throughout the UK and Northern Ireland has so much positive activity in the coming year to look out for. Feedback from the workshop includes:

“Very good workshop. Needs to be run every year”

“Well presented, good opportunity for networking, and vital links with Macmillan staff”

“It’s great to get everyone together and to contribute on how we can evolve the work in partnership”
