The annual Reaseheath WellFest (an action packed Wellbeing Festival), formerly known as the Student Survival Show, is organised and run by The Wellbeing Team, with support from staff and students. It covers a number of areas including Mental Health, Safety, Health and Fitness. This year’s event saw a large number of national/local/voluntary organisations, societies and businesses attend to support the day including:

Music was provided by The Studio.
Jujitsu demonstrations were held by Chris Mann and his students.
The canteen provided a selection of healthy sandwiches and smoothies. The library hosted a stall with a wide selection of wellbeing material.
The Sports Department gave health checks and the College Sportsmaker, Sarah Ruff, ran hula hooping, badminton and rowing competitions. 3D Driving Awareness ran an activity where students were able to drive a go-kart with beer goggles on in order to understand the dangers of drink-driving. Rubber Legs provided two entertaining inflatables, Sumo Suits and a Bungee Run, for students to interact with, get involved in competitions and have lots of fun whilst garnering lots of support, advice and guidance.
Feedback from students, staff and exhibitors has been fantastic and we look forward to an even bigger and better WellFest 2017!
