Rain didn’t stop residents of the Four Acre estate in Clockface, St Helens enjoying an evening of fun, featuring a free showing of The Greatest Showman, in celebration of local people taking the first step to get active and improve their health and wellbeing.
The event was funded by the North West’s largest social landlord, Torus and organised by its charitable arm, the Torus Foundation.
Weather conditions moved the event inside to St Michaels & All Saints Church, where attendees enjoyed healthy snacks, fancy dress and fun and games for the children.
Cath, Torus Foundation Community Investment Officer said,
“The event aimed to engage local people into a community activity and get them thinking about their own health and wellbeing by providing information and advice on activities available.
We run regular free, friendly, mixed-ability, non-judgmental fitness and healthy eating sessions with our partners from St Helens Community Sport and St Helens Healthy Living Team, helping people to go on to improve their lives.”
Local resident, Anthony, talking about the Torus Foundation Team, said,
“I personally can’t believe what Cath and Nikki have done and are doing for the Four Acre community. The event was amazing. You can see the care that you both have for Four Acre.”
Ann-Marie, Torus Project Manager – Neighbourhood Management, said,
“Torus’ Neighbourhood Management were delighted to commission Film on 4Acre. The health and wellbeing pilot has been such a success at bringing the community together and allowing local people to support each other to get active and we were keen to recognise this.
The project has brought together partners from the Torus Foundation, St Helens Sports Development, St Helens Healthy Living Team, St Theresa’s School and our amazing Community Champion volunteers from Four Acre who all worked to make both the pilot project and event, a success.”
