Preston North End Community and Education Trust will extend its online provision with the addition of a weekly health and wellbeing afternoon, supporting the mental health and wellbeing of all members of the community.
Health and wellbeing afternoons will see two videos released every Thursday, with one physical activity video and one mental wellbeing activity – supporting members of the community of all ages.
Videos will be catered to different age groups, with light physical activity videos for both children and adults and likewise for the mental wellbeing activities and tips, which will include ideas such as colouring, listening to music, walking and more.
The latest online offer adds to PNECET’s current virtual provision, which includes weekly Zoom meetings for different groups of the community and members of the Trust’s programmes, and online exercise lessons for the Premier League Primary Stars programme.
It also adds to the Trust’s Tackling Loneliness Together programme – an EFL Trust initiative seeing club community organisations from across the country tackling loneliness and isolation among the elderly as a result of the pandemic, with a range of initiatives.
The videos will be fronted by Hannah White in her new role as health and wellbeing officer for the Trust.
Hannah said: “I’m excited to be launching the Trust’s new Health and Wellbeing afternoons, which will increase our online provision by catering for both the physical and mental wellbeing of those in our community.
“We are living in difficult times as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, and therefore, it is essential that we provide a way for both our new and existing participants to remain active and engaged from home.
“The physical activity videos will provide a great way of staying active from home, catering to all as videos can be adapted to suit people of all ages and abilities.
“Exercising in itself is mentally beneficial but I’m also excited to be presenting plenty of mental wellbeing tips as well and sharing some of my own and my colleagues’ ideas on how some simple activities can help everyone to maintain some positivity from home.”
