Two Birds With One Stone

That's what I call a proper menu - top that, Gordon Ramsay!

Our fantastic Let's Get Physical! campaign reached Rhondda Cynon Taf today when the camper van and Mobile Health Centre rolled into Aberdare.

Guests had the opportunity to get a physical health check in the Centre, take part in gym exercises and enjoy a healthy lunch.

Derrick, a service user at Hafal RCT, tells us:

"The campaign has also inspired us to start a walking group. This will be an important step for us - it means we'll have an ongoing project to get our teeth into.

"This is what the campaign is about - making long-term changes. Walking is a great form of exercise, not too strenuous and great for the heart. And it's a great way to socialise. I'm really looking forward to this summer!"

Inspirational talk, thank you Derrick, and let's hope we have a great summer so your walking group can enjoy the sunshine.

And a good point that the group will also help people with another of the eight "life areas" which together contribute to recovery, namely social life. So two birds with one stone.
