This Girl Can - One year on - Did we make a difference?

TCG is now 1 years old! Independent research has shown that 2.8 million women aged 14 to 40 who recognise the campaign say they have done some or more activity as a result and 1.6 million of those women say they have started exercising. Very Berry has loved being part of the Nottingham campaign.

Nationally, 540,000 women and girls have joined the This Girl Can social media community and here in Nottingham, we have over 3,500 people signed up to our TGC Nottingham facebook page. We really want this number to grow over the next year so ‘like’ the page – in case you need it, click HERE.
