Feel well, Wanstead

A week of events in Wanstead focusing on well-being starts on Monday – part of an ongoing movement to help people’s resilience during coronavirus.

The week includes events targeting physical and mental health and is taking place both online and offline.

Elsa Arnold, one of the organisers and someone who, for a young person, has a long history of helping the Wanstead community, said: “Wellness week in Wanstead this year has been launched to coincide with World Mental Health day on the 9th October.

“The aim of the week is to promote an overall awareness of our health and well-being and highlight the importance of taking time out to care for ourselves, particularly in the current climate. The week will also aim to open up relevant conversations and support charities doing vital work in these areas.”

The events are free but are ticketed – you can get tickets from Eventbrite at http://bit.ly/wellnessweektickets.
