A SEVEN day health and wellbeing challenge will use a s symbol of hope to bring positivity into people’s homes during lock down.

As part of their ongoing support for NHS and front-line workers, Denbighshire Leisure have launched the rainbow themed scheme for families during the Covid-19.

All over the UK people are showing their support for NHS and front line workers by creating rainbow images, a symbolising of the sun emerging from a rainy sky.

Challenge creator and Denbighshire Leisure fitness instructor Kara Roberts, said: “As instructors we have been speaking as a group about the mental health and wellbeing of our members since the start of this pandemic and we have been putting together workouts, challenges and tips on social media to interact, however wanted to take it that step further and follow the trail of hope.

"I have family in the NHS, so I wanted to give something back, it was a no brainer. The children were making Rainbows in support of the NHS stay safe campaign and I just thought it would be a great opportunity to turn this into a health and wellbeing challenge.

To follow this scheme, the challenge will ask participants to eat coloured foods and wear the colour of each day - for example, wear red on day one and eat tomatoes, strawberries or a red apple.

Ms Roberts added: "I can’t wait to see the children and families of Denbighshire taking part.”

Denbighshire Leisure will also continue to lighting up Rhyl Pavilion and 1891 restaurant and Rhyl Sky Tower every Thursday evening at 8pm to honour NHS and health care workers.

Bobby Feeley, the council's lead cabinet member for well-being, said: “This gesture is to show our thanks and appreciation for those workers who are putting others before themselves. We hope everyone stays safe during this uncertain time.”

The challenge started on Thursday, April 9 - however families can start the seven day programme at any point. For more information, visit the Denbighshire Leisure Ltd Facebook page.
