The Wimble Foundation



What is Tai Chi? Tai Chi is an ancient martial art typically performed slowly. It helps to improve the balance while reducing stress and anxiety, and improving your sense of wellbeing. It is suitable for people of all ages and levels of fitness – if you are able to walk around unaided then you will be able to perform the exercises.

Who can attend these classes? The classes are free for people affected by cancer, including carers and close family.

Where are the classes run? All classes are held at the Ebbisham Sports Club, Eastway, Epsom KT19 8SG.

Time: Fridays 2pm - 3pm during term time.

Call 07977 135506 for more information or to book a place.

Members and the public are also permitted to attend for a small charge which will go to Princess Alice Hospice.

Why the classes are open to everyone and why donations are accepted

I do not charge cancer patients and their close family and carers to attend the classes.

I collect donations (including charging from £4 for members of the public who want to attend) which are given to Princess Alice Hospice and Ebbisham's charity of the year so that I get to use the venue free of charge. This means that the classes can truly be completely free of charge to those affected by cancer.
