As winter is approaching, free help and advice about keeping warm and staying healthy is being offered at the Holiday Inn, (St John’s Shopping Centre) Lime Street.
Taking place on Wednesday 21 November from 10am to 1pm, the event will have around 40 exhibitors, from a wide range of organisations including Liverpool City Council Services and various community groups. They will provide information and advice on a number of issues including:
- Fuel Poverty
- Energy efficiency
- Financial assistance
- Healthy living
- Keeping Active
- Social inclusion
There will be free tea/coffee available on arrival and a free bag of veg to take home (while stocks last).
Those attending will be entered into a free prize draw to win £100 off your gas/electricity bill and other prizes donated by local businesses.
There will be free health checks, manicures and Tai Chi demonstrations.
You need not even get up to stay healthy as Healthiness Ltd will lead some chair based exercise in the form of Active Bingo (with prizes!!)
The event will be opened by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Christine Banks. This event is becoming one of the most significant in our calendar with more and more people attending.
It attracts so many people because they know it is very important to find out the best way to cope with winter – whether it is how to keep warm or what help is available over energy bills.
The Winter Survival campaign is aimed at reducing excess winter deaths in Liverpool. In 2016/17 there were still more than 230 deaths in our city which is worse than nationally.
