STUDENTS PEDAL WAY TO BETTER HEALTH

4th January 2018

Students at City of Wolverhampton will be pedalling their way to better health on a smoothie-making bike next week.

The stationary exercise bike – fitted with special blenders that whip up delicious fruit smoothies as the rider pedals – is one of the attractions at a health fair at the Paget Road campus on January 9 and Wellington Road campus on January 11.

Students will also be able to get sexual health advice from the Terrence Higgins Trust, information on drugs and alcohol from Recovery Near You, details of support for those affected by domestic violence from White Ribbon, support available for local women from Aspiring Futures, and the importance of sensible driving and safety in the home from West Midlands Fire Service.Meanwhile, students at the Metro One campus in the city centre will be taking part in a competition to see who can make the healthiest meal, and tucking in to healthy snacks on sale in the on-site bakery shop.

Rose Urkovskis, head of student services at the college, said: “The health fair is a great opportunity for students to find out about support available to them in the local area, and the smoothie bike is always a really popular attraction and a fun way for students to find out about healthy eating.”
