Our learners in Swansea took a shot at improving their health and wellbeing during a visit from footballing legend Lee Trundle.
The former striker attended a wellbeing event with the goal of helping to promote alternative coping strategies among students at Dan Y Coed.
Learners enjoyed a kick about with the Swansea City Ambassador, as well as a tai chi session and art therapy class.
Gemma Pullen, Assistant Behaviour Specialist at Dan Y Coed, said: “As exercise is a crucial part of wellbeing, and we have a couple of budding football players here who are huge Swansea City fans, we were really grateful to Lee for coming to the event, where the students thoroughly enjoyed kicking the ball around with him.
“We also use alternative therapies such as yoga, tai chi, meditation, complimentary therapy and art to teach our students and their families strategies to calm the mind and body which can also be used as distraction techniques when they may feel upset or anxious.”
Dan y Coed officially opened as a residential facility this summer following a multi-million-pound refurbishment project to turn the former outdoor pursuits centre into a state-of-the-art living space for up to 20 children.
