Rotary International has continued in its backing of the Health Mela programme with a glowing statement of support from its number one representative in the UK.

Writing in support of the first Fylde Coast Health Mela which is taking place in the Winter Gardens Blackpool on October, 5th. between 11.00am and 4.00 pm, Nan McCreadie, President of Rotary International in Great Britain & Ireland said:

Nan McCreadie, Rotary President “Health and wellbeing is a top priority for Rotarians and the nine Rotary clubs in the Fylde Coast area are pleased to be helping out as volunteers for this very worthy cause.

“Many people are reluctant to go to their GP and sometimes health issues can slip through the net. So the first Fylde Coast Health Mela is an excellent opportunity for local people to have free health checks in an informal setting and possibly identify health issues that they weren’t otherwise aware of. They can then follow these up with their GP, which can only be a good thing.

“We wish the organisers well for a successful and productive event, which, in addition to the health benefits, also offers entertainment and competitions for children, making it a great day out for all the family.”

The event, organised jointly by members of Rotary International and the National Forum for Health and Wellbeing, includes information on all aspects of the health service, activities for all the family together with the opportunity to take a comprehensive ‘Health MOT’

Admission is free so why not come along and celebrate at this unique festival of health and wellbeing in Blackpool.
