Walking Off The Blues

On Friday 12th April over 300 people got their blue outfits on and joined us 'Walking Off The Blues'. Despite a bit of rain the event was a huge success! In total, together we raised £600 for East Belfast Community Counselling! You can still donate online by visiting www.everydayhero.co.uk/walkingofftheblues. This event was organised by Active Belfast, East Belfast Partnership’s Health and Good Relations project and the Connswater Community Greenway team the walk highlighted how walking can help your mental health. The walk also promoted wellbeing, provided information about local walking and wellbeing groups, and encouraged people to talk to their neighbours and help people make new friends. On the day there was fantastic blues music from the lovely Mama Kaz. If you want to find out some information on joining a walking group please email eleanor@eastbelfastpartnership.org.
