A Wanstead teenager has organised a week of free online activities to promote awareness of health and wellbeing.
“Wellness Week in Wanstead will coincide with World Mental Health Day on 10 October. The aim of the week is to 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,” said 18-year-old Elsa Arnold, an anti-bullying ambassador who also founded the Spreading Kindness Through E11 initiative in 2018.
The week, which runs from 5 to 11 October, will include a range of events, including yoga and mindfulness, Zumba classes, a singing workshop, webinars and quiz nights, all to be run by local professionals.
