Youngsters in Tower Hamlets set to enjoy health workshops
Almost 300 schoolchildren are set to enjoy a series of workshops to learn about the choices they need to take to keep their hearts as healthy as possible.
The ‘In a Heart Beat” workshops, which are due to begin next month (February), will be run at nine schools and three community groups across Tower Hamlets over a six-month period.
The sessions are part of outreach project being organised by Centre of the Cell, an educational charity in Whitechapel based in Newark Street, and are being funded by a £9,300 grant from national charity Heart Research UK.
The youngsters will learn about risk factors associated with heart problems, such as smoking and poor diet.
Umme Aysha, Tower Hamlets outreach officer at Centre of the Cell, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Heart Research UK to deliver this project to the community.
