Local residents go on a walk to improve their health

Initially the ‘Buzzin’ Bees’ project aimed to get residents of Blackburn with Darwen active and enthused about getting and staying healthy by providing health wearables (Fitbit’s), running group sessions relating to health and physical activity and providing personalised support from the project facilitator. It was intended that 2 cohorts of 30 participants would be recruited, however the emergence of COVID-19 necessitated a change in focus: understanding the impact of the virus on the existing participants. Take a look at the end of project report for more information.
