Helen Durrant

"I have lived in Norwich for over 20 years, much of my work has been in the Arts & Heritage sector. Swimming and yoga have been my long term activity choices as well as all sorts of dance - from Folk dance to Scottish Country Dancing to Ballroom. Recently I have begun to take fitness seriously and have been exploring the opportunity to try a variety of new things through the UEA Sportspark Fitness in Later Life (FILL) programme.

I am interested in access to opportunities for sport, health and well-being activities for all and in overcoming barriers to participation. In particular, I would like to increase the access to fitness for health in later life for women and for people with on-going health conditions. I am very pleased to be offered the opportunity to be an ambassador for "This Girl Can" to support my aim to make sport open to the not-so sporty!"
