LOROS announces new bereavement boxing support group


6 Dec 2023

Grief can bring us all sorts of emotions, including feeling angry, sad, exhausted, and like our world has been turned upside down.

Boxing is a great way of channeling these reactions, releasing excess adrenalin and energy, and helping our overall health and wellbeing too.

Join us for an innovative way of exploring your grief by using boxing and fitness in a welcoming, friendly group of people who’ve experienced bereavement too.

The Loss Project, RTB Fitness and LOROS Hospice are bringing you the RELEASE Programme, a six week boxing and exercise programme which uses boxing as a way to help us to process and acknowledge grief. The programme is endorsed by Dying Matters Rutland.

The sessions are open to anyone aged 18+, of any abilities, with no previous boxing or fitness experience necessary to participate. They will be taking place at St Georges Barracks in North Luffenham, LE15 8RL, starting on 25th January 2024 at 6.30pm, each lasting around an hour and a quarter.

The sessions are all non-contact and give you a great way to try boxing, get fit alongside mindfulness techniques and other ways of exploring our natural and human responses to grief.

A participant from the West Essex RELEASE group said:

"The bereavement boxing group has really helped me navigate my grief. When you lose somebody, it’s really hard to stay motivated to do anything. This group has given me something to look forward to and has been a great way to relieve the stress and anxiety that comes with grief.

“This group has really gotten me through the last couple of months and helped me when I felt at my lowest."
