Wednesday, 10 July, 2024

Waltham Forest, July 13, 2024 – Following the unfortunate pause of Our Parks sessions in Waltham Forest due to park licensing costs, a dedicated Parker reached out to Joe and Nikki Wicks. This connection led them to Our Parks founder, Born Barikor, and an inspiring collaboration was born. Joe and Nikki were thrilled to learn about the incredible work Our Parks has been doing in the community and were eager to offer their support.

Joe Wicks, widely known for his dedication to fitness and well-being, especially during the lockdown period with his renowned "PE with Joe" sessions, was particularly keen to support Our Parks. By funding the Waltham Forest sessions and helping to raise awareness of the programme, Joe aims to get more people moving and engaged in regular physical activity.

This weekend, on Saturday 13th July at 10am, Lloyd Park E17 will host the relaunch of Our Parks in Waltham Forest, featuring Joe Wicks in attendance. Joe has committed to becoming a funding partner for the programme, working alongside Our Parks to inspire the community to stay active.

Born Barikor, founder of Our Parks, expressed his gratitude: "This means such a great deal to us. Joe and his team have gone above and beyond to help and have truly shown their commitment to helping the nation move."

Joe Wicks added: “I'm incredibly excited to support Our Parks. I was blown away when I learned more about all the amazing work they have been doing for many years to get people moving. Their mission to make fitness accessible to everyone aligns perfectly with my own. Together, we can inspire and motivate even more people to get active and enjoy the benefits of regular exercise”.
