And the choice is varied. Soft gym, IT, pole walking, culture, nutrition, memory, self-esteem with advice on make-up and body care, the program even offers a workshop with the aim of updating the traffic law. “We are fortunate to be able to rely, since launch, on serious, dynamic stakeholders who really take everyone’s needs into account”, continues Angèle Manfredi.
