DEWSBURY MP Paula Sherriff is hosting her first health and wellbeing fair in the town next Friday.
The fair, which is free to enter, is being held at Howlands on School Street between 11am and 2pm. It will bring together organisations that either offer support for mental and physical health conditions, offer advice on healthy living or provide a service which improves health and fitness.
More than 20 organisations have confirmed their attendance, including the Stroke Association, Powerhoop Mirfield and the Huddersfield Town Foundation.
Miss Sherriff said: “The fair really is shaping up to be a brilliant event and I’ve had such an incredible response so far! We’ve been inundated with requests for stalls, and we have a wide variety of organisations, ranging from Kirklees Citizens Advice & Law Centre and Connect Housing, to Kirklees Active Leisure and the Bat Girls rounders team.
“It’s so vital that we’re aware of our own mental and physical health, understand how to live a healthy lifestyle and know how to access the support available to us should we need it, and my Health and Wellbeing Fair will give my constituents an opportunity to do just that.”
