Staff, diners and volunteers at the Addy Older People’s Lunch Club in Knottingley were treated to some refreshing after-lunch entertainment, courtesy of the Wakefield health and wellbeing development worker team, which is provide by the Trust.
With support from the Prince of Wales Hospice Shop at Hilltop, Knottingley, the team presented their Summer 2013 ‘Top Tips for Summer’ fashion show. The Prince of Wales Hospice improves the quality of life for people with a life-limiting illness. It provides specialist care and support for patients, and their families and friends.
Members of the health and wellbeing team showed off their acting skills to promote summer health messages, whilst modelling clothing from the Hospice shop’s summer range. The summer health messages included advice featured on the NHS Choices website and also top tips from partner organisations including the Knottingley Neighbourhood Police Team and the local Fire Prevention Team.
As well as providing clothing for the models to wear, staff from the Prince of Wales Hospice Shop set up a ‘pop-up shop’ for diners to browse after the show. Items included rails of clothing and summer themed items, including books, hats and jewellery.
It was a fantastic afternoon and the fashion show format was a great way to bring health and wellbeing messages to life.
