Visitors at the health and wellbeing event, enjoying the rainbow salads

Westminster residents sampled rainbow salads and smoothies as they enjoyed a free health and well-being event in Pimlico.

Dozens of people took part in a whole host of healthy and positive activities at the Abbey Centre Community Association led event which was funded by Sanctuary Housing, Public Health City of Westminster, CityWest Homes and Peabody.

Visitors enjoyed healthy demonstrations on how to make colourful and hearty salads and smoothies as well as trying out yoga and relaxation techniques, sporty outdoor games and head and hand massages.

The event formed part of a wider Community Champions initiative in Churchill Gardens and Tachbrook; a five year project which aims to recruit new community champions to share important messages about health and other local services. Since the project started in June 2015, six champions have been recruited.

Community Champions project coordinator Nisha Subasinghe, commented: “The Community Champions project at The Abbey Centre is delighted to have started spreading positive health and wellbeing messages to residents in Churchill Gardens, Tachbrook and Denbigh Triangle.

“There were more than 50 adults and 25 children and young people that attended the event, and we look forward to holding more workshops and events very soon.”

This event was funded by Sanctuary Group’s Community Investment Fund, supporting projects which benefit Sanctuary residents and their communities.
