The Henstones – keeping fit and active as a family

Getting out and being active has been a challenge for the Henstone family. All six children have disabilities, so finding something that is suitable has not been easy. Thanks to Cycling4All Shropshire, the family has found a new love for cycling.

The Henstones are a pretty amazing family of eight! Chris and his wife have six children, all of whom have Downs Syndrome; three are also autistic, and two have other health-related issues. All of this makes getting out and doing physical activities together difficult. Being inactive was already starting to take its toll - the two eldest children were overweight and Chris was also starting to feel unfit.
