SI Cockermouth and District were in the Times & Star for their mental wellness day

A fun mental wellness event will be held in Cockermouth to coincide with World Mental Health Day.

Cockermouth Soroptimists are holding the ‘Be Kind to Yourself’ event in United Reformed Church on October 12, from 10am to 3pm.

President Katherine Eilbeck said that the theme this year is for all UK Soroptimist clubs to focus on Mental Health (#SoroptimistsThinkOnIt), so club members wanted to provide a free fun event for all the community.

She said: “We are bringing together groups, companies and individuals who are involved in delivering activities that bring people together and make them feel better, with people who are looking to try new activities and experiences and want a chance to make new friends.”

Club member Jane Inman, who is helping Katherine with the planning for the day, said: “All the organisations have been fantastic in responding to this idea and our programme of tasters, talks and stalls includes opportunities to try running, rowing, walking, singing, craftwork, Tai Chi, movement and stretching, mediation, massage and mindfulness and to learn about the Women out West (WOW) centre, nutrition and exercise …amongst others.”
