Open invite to health fayre

A COMMUNITY health fayre will be held at the Pat Cullinan Community Centre on Thursday, August 30, from 10am to 1pm.

The event is being organised by the Motherwell Health and Wellness Hub and will be opened by MSP John Pentland.

The hub was established in January to provide a holistic health and wellbeing service within the North Lanarkshire community, offering support and services that are affordable, accessible and inclusive.

In June it received funding from The Big Lottery to launch a one-year community health project offering support, services and activities that address people’s emotional and physical health and wellbeing needs.

A variety of organisations will be present on the day, giving people an opportunity to access services and support that they may not know about or could not previously access.

There will be taster sessions in zumba, yoga, relaxation, keep fit/fitness testing and holistic therapies such as aromotherapy, reiki and reflexology. There will also be nutrition advice available and free fruit/veg and smoothies.

From Thursday, September 6, the hub will be in the Pat Cullinan Community Centre every week, offering a variety of physical activities, stress management sessions, holistic therapies, confidence/self esteem workshops, employability focused workshops and financial advice and support. A ‘drop in’ surgery will also be provided.
