PERSONNEL from across HMS Sultan were given the opportunity to explore a range of different extra-curricular activities and personal support services that are on offer to them recently at the HMS Sultan Health and Wellbeing Fayre.
Weightlifting, Brazilian Ju-Jitsu and spinning were just some of the physical activities that were on offer alongside stalls from clubs, forces services and supporting charities. In addition, there were also stalls promoting a healthy lifestyle with the trainees also able to enjoy fresh nutritious food and smoothies.
Physical Training Instructor Joe Collin said: “Keeping a healthy body and mind plays a big part in helping each one of us to perform at our best, the event allows personnel to find signposts to many things they might have known about such as mortgage advice, kit insurance and charities who can help out in tough times.
“The smallest thing can affect personnel’s mental health in different ways, so it is always good to know where you can turn for support. The Health and Wellbeing Fayre offers trainees with an opportunity to come and explore all the different clubs and activities that are available to them during their time here at Sultan. Hopefully, the experience will help them make the most of their time with us.”
There are many clubs, societies and activities covering a wide range of interests currently held within HMS Sultan and most are also open to civilian personnel. For further information and guidance please see speak to staff at the Sports And Recreation Centre.
