Eat, Nourish, Live with Hannah Bailey

On the 12th January 2021, Hannah Bailey will be holding an Eat, Nourish, Live workshop for our MINs.

Hannah is a nutritional therapist who is passionate about whole foods, and the use of food to improve health, with a particular focus on gut health and women's health.

A balanced diet and approach to food is integral to our wellbeing, and therefore we are very excited for Hannah to hold her first workshop with our MINs.

MINs Christmas Party 2020

On the 11th December MIN held a virtual Christmas Party for all of our trustees, staff and volunteers. Despite this year being a tough one for everyone, we were determined to end it with a bit of sparkle and cheer.

We also had 2 very special guests at that party who held some amazing talks and events for us, the first of whom was Deb Lenard. Deb works for Tropic Skincare, and provided some amazing packs of natural and cruelty free skincare for our MINs this year.

Kerry Scorah, who is an award winning close up magician, also brought some incredible magic to the party. You can check out her fantastic tricks here: https://www.kerryscorah.co.uk

Overall it was a great night, despite being virtual, and a great way to celebrate a great year of Mums In Need!

This helps foster positive wellbeing by teaching simple but useful techniques to manage stress and find a sense of calm and space to breathe everyday. He focuses on teaching useful tools in how to manage stress, promoting positive wellbeing and mental health.
