The Co-operative Academy stages Healthy Lifestyles Fun Day

The Co-operative Academy of Manchester is staging an innovative healthy lifestyles fun day supported by BBC Children in Need.

The fun-packed day, which promises to offer something for everyone, takes place during half term on Wednesday 28 October from 10am-2pm.

People of all ages are being encouraged to go along to the Academy on Plant Hill Road and try a range of new sports or activities including: Dance; Tai Chi; Boxing; Rugby; Climbing; Buggy Boot Camp and Cheerleading.

In addition there will be an opportunity to watch a series of cooking demonstrations and taste a range of healthy food samples.

Community football for children aged 6 -13 will also be available on the  Academy’s  all-weather 3G pitch every weekday of half term (Monday 26 – Friday 30 October).

One of the organisers, Laura Morley, Community Projects Manager at the Academy, said: “The fun day is part of a larger project based around providing practical activities to help young people to adopt healthier eating, regular exercise and healthy habits at home.

“With the support of BBC Children in Need we are looking to educate young people and their families about how changes in exercise patterns and eating habits can have beneficial effects long term.”
