Winchcombe Street Wellbeing Fest to support Longfield Hospice

Where: Cheltenham Martial Arts, 50 Winchcombe Street, Cheltenham

When: Saturday, March 23, 2pm-5pm

A charity wellbeing and fitness festival in aid of the Gloucestershire-based Longfield Hospice is being held in Cheltenham later this month.

The Winchcombe Street Wellbeing Fest takes place at the Cheltenham Martial Arts Academy in Winchcombe Street on Saturday, March 23, from 2pm-5pm.

There will be a juice demo and taster protein power balls to kick start the day from Jay Halford, The Raw Chef. The event includes a fitness kickboxing blast out with Matt Rudman, owner of Cheltenham Martial Arts, and a Flow & Glow yoga class with Nina Lane-Jenkins, owner of Rock Beam Yoga.

All equipment will be provided and their friendly classes are suitable for absolute beginners and those wishing to increase their wellbeing.

There will also be a cupping demo with Purelands Acupuncture whose owners Paolo William Nicosia and Ellie Louise Bradshaw will also be providing massages throughout the day for all wellbeing guests.

Nafia Harding, owner and chef at Upraw Foods, will later be providing healthy 'cake recovery' during the Grand Raffle and recipe cards.

A wealth of prizes worth up to 3k have been donated to the grand raffle, including a karate party for up to 20 children at Cheltenham Martial Arts, along with a six month membership for adult and child, a yoga course from Rock Beam Yoga, acupuncture treatments and an organic and cruelty free product hamper.

Nina Lane-Jenkins, one of the organisers of the event, said: "We only have 30 tickets for sale so this is quite an exclusive event, first-come-first-served! The afternoon and ticket price of £37 is amazing value as you are getting over £60 worth of fitness and wellbeing goodies on the day, the experience will leave you feeling empowered, revitalised and fantastic."

Nina has joined forces with Matt Rudman and Paolo William Nicosia to try to raise as much as possible for the Longfield Hospice.

She added: "My father sadly passed away last April and they were a lifeline to helping and supporting him and our family. I wanted to create a charity event to raise awareness about this amazing charity and give something back to them. And to organise something in honour of my dad's memory. He was an amazing man."

"100% of our proceeds are going to this charity. We have been in touch with Longfield who are really behind our festival, which is great.

"It's also a great chance to bring all the local businesses together along Winchcombe Street to collaborate and raise the local business community vibe."
