Leaders In Tower Hamlets Cancer Exercise

Si Mohamed Dahiri, Ability Bow Operations Manager, says: "We're delighted to be able to offer disabled people and those with long-term health conditions an exciting new exercise project which meets the needs of those living with cancer and those who've been affected with the condition.
