Health on the agenda

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Wedding of the Week - Ian Bunt­ing

Mon­k­lands fam­i­lies are be­ing en­cour­aged to lead health­ier life­styles thanks to Make, Move and Munch Clubs.

A series of eight free ses­sions are be­ing held across North La­nark­shire over the sum­mer hol­i­days as part of a ma­jor char­ity drive.

The Na­tional Char­ity Part­ner­ship ( NCP), a part­ner­ship be­tween Di­a­betes UK, the Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion (BHF) and Tesco, is fund­ing the clubs as part of its two-year Let’s Do This health cam­paign.

The free ac­tiv­i­ties are be­ing de­liv­ered by La­nark­shire com­mu­nity food and health part­ner­ship and are de­signed to sup­port fam­i­lies to eat bet­ter and move more.

Kather­ine Hale, pre­ven­tion pro­gramme man­ager for the NCP, said: “Many peo­ple aren’t aware Type 2 di­a­betes and heart and cir­cu­la­tory dis­ease are largely pre­ventable con­di­tions and eat­ing healthily is one way peo­ple can re­duce their risk.

“Our clubs are de­signed to pro­vide fam­i­lies with in­for­ma­tion, skills and sup­port to help them im­prove their health by mak­ing changes to their life­styles.”
