Case Studies

We are very keen to hear from you. We'd love for you to tell us how becoming active has had a positive impact on your life. We want to tell your stories, to inspire and encourage other women just like you to give being active a go.

You can share your story with us via Facebook or by e-mailing it through to andrea.stone@activederbyshire.org.uk. Alternatively, give us a call and we'll write your story up for you.

With your help, we hope that more Pinxton Girls will feel they can.
