We were very proud to learn of the success of a recent 50+ Wellbeing Day event that was organised and led by Anita Barrand as part of our Social Prescribing project in Evington, with lots of help and input from the Helen Pettman at Friends of Evington too.
The 50+ Wellbeing Event was held on Saturday 24th June at Evington Park House and tried to get awareness of our charity, our Social Prescribing project and LAT out there at hyper local grassroots level.
Anita Barrand says “We had great turn out! Huge heartfelt thanks to all of the wonderful LAT staff and volunteers who ran stalls and activities: Outstanding moments include Suky Garcha’s ‘laughter yoga’, WEA aromatherapy ladies (WOW!), the Downing Drive patients who did a sterling job of recruiting volunteers, exhibiting their artwork and generally mucking in and not forgetting the truly lovely Gurpreet from AoHL. Thank you for your support and look forward to future collaborations!”
Following the success of this initial event, we hope to be able to try and organise future ones to drum up more awareness in the future. We hope that some of the contacts we made will become volunteers and learners through our Social Prescribing: More Than Medication project.
