Isle of Man College Health Fayre - ‘Looking After the Whole You’ 5 March 2012

Health Fayre 2012 flyerThe Isle of Man College hosts this year’s annual Health Fayre, with the theme of ‘Looking after the whole you’, on Wednesday 14th March. College students, local young people and the general public will have an opportunity to find out about healthy choices and local support agencies.

The wide range of topics to be addressed by the thirty plus voluntary and statutory agencies in attendance includes fitness tips from the NSC, support for problem gambling with Gamcare, advice on stopping smoking with Quit4You, guidance on healthy ways of expressing anger from the Psychological Therapies Service and information and awareness raising of ovarian cancer with a representative of UK Ovarian Cancer Action in partnership with IOM Anti-Cancer.

Local reiki therapists will offer 20 minute stress busting treatments and Isle of Man College Hair and Beauty students will provide a range of treatments including Indian head massage and face mapping. Yoga sessions with Barbara Thorn will be held throughout the morning and Digger, Daisy, Lucy and their furry chums from Paws for Therapy will also be on hand for people who want to find out about animal assisted therapy.

Anne Gundry, Head of Student Services at the College said; “We are delighted so many local agencies have agreed to attend the Fayre and provide information on topics which are of real relevance to young people in their everyday lives. Contributors will present information in an easy to understand, interactive, informative and fun way. Between them they will address the full meaning of health – physical, emotional and mental well being”.

The Fayre will be opened by David Anderson, Minister for Health, at 9.15 a.m. and attended by Peter Karran, Minister for Education; it will run until 1.00 p.m. A programme of activities will be available at the College Reception. Although the Fayre is targeted at young people aged 16 plus, anyone is welcome to attend. For further information, please phone Abbie on 648254.
