Hawke's Bay Today
Wellness day goes down a treat
Focus was on the five ways to wellbeing
AA great day to catch up with friends and join in with some fun learning.
local business came up with a fantastic idea to ensure staff and their whanau were taking care of themselves in what has been a challenging year to say the least.
The Tumu Wellness Day, organised by the Tumu Timbers Wellbeing Committee, was a perfect opportunity for Tumu to show their commitment and focus on the health and wellbeing of staff and their whanau.
Along with like-minded businesses, the Hawke’s Bay community came together to promote, inform, remind and entertain more than 300 people at the Hawke’s Bay Sports Park in partnership with the Hawke’s Bay Community Fitness Centre Trust.
It was a day to acknowledge what kind of year 2020 has been and to emphasise the importance of health and wellbeing. It was a day to get to know local services and providers to help improve or maintain a positive health and wellbeing lifestyle.
The focus was on the five ways to wellbeing — Connect, Be Active, Keep Learning, Give and Take Notice
There were informative and interactive health provider stalls including Heart Foundation,
Breath HB, Brain Injury, Smokefree, Shape My Health, Optimise Physio, Body Bliss Massage, Maurice Trapp group, Waste Minimisation, Youth Employment, Hastings District Council, Medics on Scene, N cubed and so many more.
Entertainment included the Ranfurly Shield, live performances from Project prima Volta, a photo booth, a TikTok station, face painters, bouncy castles, and various competitions.
There was food, giveaways, prizes and lots of laughter and chatter. It was a day filled with families, adults, children, babies, grandparents, friends, and work colleagues.
One person described it as “a great day to catch up with friends, have a good feed and join in with some fun learning. The outdoor games/bouncy castles and all the competitions with prizes were great!”
Another said “Great day! Awesome Kaupapa, great to see Tumu’s taking a genuine interest in the wellbeing of their staff and whanau — Ka pai!”
