Charity Shop welcomes new Health Point Stand

St. Luke’s CARES has just introduced a new ‘Health Point’ Information Stand in their Dewsbury Road charity shop in Beeston.

Health Point StandAlong with browsing the quality second hand items at affordable prices St Luke’s CARES have teamed up with Joanne Davies, Health Improvement Principal from NHS public health, to raise health awareness among the community in Beeston.

The Health Point Stand is staffed and on display in the shop every Tuesday afternoon from 12:30–2:30pm. You can find information and advice on healthy eating, recipe ideas, money management, help with stopping smoking and reducing alcohol consumption. There is also information and assistance with signposting to the Health Trainers based at Health for All for a more one-on-one support program.

“We recognise that we have a diverse range of customers who regularly use our charity shops across South Leeds” said Duncan Wells, St Luke’s CARES Retail Manager. “Some of these individuals may not regularly access mainstream health services and so by bringing help and information to them through the shop will help raise awareness of how to live a healthy lifestyle and where to access local health related support services.”

St. Luke’s CARES welcomes the public to visit the Health Stand Point every Tuesday from 12:30–2:30pm. (Outside of the time slot, just ask the manager for more information).
