Lunchtime community music concert at St Mary’s Health Campus, Gurranabraher
Martin’s Music HAZ band and the Mayfield Mens’ Shed Choir will take part in a concert on the quad in front of St Mary’s Primary Care Centre on September 30th from 12.30pm to 1.30pm. This is a standing event, and the organisers advise anyone coming to dress for the possible rain and cold. The concert marks the completion of a Get Active, Get Connected Calendar of local health events for September. More details on the calendar of events are on https://www.healthactionzone.ie/getactive-getconnected/
Sorcha Ni Chrualaoich, Principal Community Worker, Community Work with the HSE/Cork Kerry Community Healthcare Community Work Department said the event is open to the wider community.
“As a team we are very proud of the wide variety of health focused initiatives on offer in the area throughout September. Our aim is to encourage people once again to ‘Get Active’ and ‘Get Connected’ back into their community, tring out some new activities (in person or online) and hopefully develop some new friendships along the way.”
“Community Health Projects and Health Action Zones have been enhancing community health over the past 18 years on the Northside and in Fermoy, Mallow and Youghal. Community Health Workers work individually and collectively and their aim is to support and promote the development of sustainable health projects within their communities based on identified needs. Community Health Workers work in partnership with a wide variety of other local voluntary, statutory and community organisations to improve the health and lifestyle of a community through a series of health focused initiatives.”
