The ‘Sunnd’ Health and Wellbeing programme is an initiative led by Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn (UOG) which aims to facilitate opportunities for the community to support all to have a high quality of life by remaining active, healthy, safe, and included. 

The initiative began in the spring of 2018 as a pilot scheme for individuals over the age of 60 in partnership with the local ‘Young at Heart’ club.  It has since opened up to all members of the community.

This year's programme featured a host of exciting activities, including line and salsa dancing, art sessions, photography courses, health walks and more.
