The London Irish Centre was delighted to host Irish in Britain’s Green Hearts campaign at our Day Centre this week as part of May Measurement month, to promote a healthy living message!

We would like to extend a huge thank you to the London Rose Centre and the London Roses for coming along and helping with our blood pressure screenings.They also joined in with our Get Moving Exercise Class!

Ruth Melican, Wellbeing Services Health Navigator at the LICC said: 

"I would like to say a huge thank you to Green Hearts and May Measurement Month for coming along to the London Irish Centre and running free blood pressure screenings.

"Service users were queuing up to get their blood pressure checked and many mentioned that they would refer to the heart health guide they were given to see what improvements they could make to their lifestyle.

"It was great to have the Roses involved in promoting heart health - they even joined in with the Get Moving exercise class who were getting a good work out! Overall. it was a huge success and, due to the level of interest, we will now look at doing blood pressure screenings on a quarterly basis."
