Steel Bones has partnered with Abbeycroft Leisure to launch the programme to help members get a healthy lifestyle and fitness goals.

Trainer Lee Hyne puts the attendees through their paces in a level appropriate to them.

It takes place every Wednesday from 7.30pm to 8.30pm at Brandon Leisure Centre.

Emma and Leigh Joy-Staines, the charity's founders, said: "This is a fantastic centre with welcoming, friendly and professional experts who have treated our group with great care.

"It has been such a joy to see the amazing impact the sessions have had on the attendees not only in physical health but emotional well being too."

Steel Bones operates on a voluntary basis, working to connect the amputee community, create friendships and provide a support network.
