More about this event:
Improving the health and wellbeing of their staff as well as the community will be the focus of Age UK North Tyneside’s latest event.
The charity’s first ever Health and Wellbeing Event at Meadowell Connected will be up and ‘running’ on Tuesday 23rd July from 10-2pm.
With activities for all the family, and advice available on a range of topics, the charity is offering a one-stop-shop for health and wellbeing for people of all ages.
People will be able to take part in a range of sessions - including cheerleading, Tai Chi, Head and Hand massages and cycling – while advice will avallable on areas including sexual health, cancer awareness, healthy eating, weight management and alcohol awareness.
There will also be free wellbeing checks throughout the day, where blood pressure, height and weight can be measured.
One of the organisers and Age UK North Tyneside Health Advocate Suzanne Enguita said: “There will be various activities and lots of advice on offer – this event is bringing everything together under one roof. This is a great chance for our employees but also the community to find out more about their own health and wellbeing but also, importantly, to enjoy themselves! We want people to see the bigger picture and help them keep healthy and to take care of themselves.”
The event is part of Age UK North Tyneside’s continuing work within the Better Health at Work Award, which recognises the efforts of employers addressing health issues within the workplace.
Age UK North Tyneside, which has around 80 employees, was awarded the Silver Award in January last year, and is now working towards the Gold Award. The charity also runs a social enterprise - care provider EveryDay – which has 180 employees.
Suzanne added: "The health and wellbeing of our employees is so important to us, we want to do all we can to help them, while also reaching out and doing the same for people in our community."
