Doncaster College hosted its second Be Well Festival at its Hub campus recently.

The Festival was promoting and encouraging the awareness of a healthy body and a healthy mind and aimed to educate students and staff on ways to lead a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle and provide them with information on various topics.

Amongst the topics covered and events taking place at the Festival, were fitness testing, substance abuse, exam pressure, sexual health, emotional health, dietary awareness, creative therapy, cancer prevention, and many more.
There was a Cycle Roadshow, a Zumbathon and free water and fruit. Taster sessions for different sports were run in the Hub’s sport hall.

A College spokesperson said, ‘There were plenty of things to try including a scheme called ‘Pay it Forward’ which was a means of encouraging the act of a good turn for someone else, like buying someone a coffee Or telling someone they look nice or opening a door and saying good morning…. just something to brighten up the day. The person who had done the good turn passed a card onto the next person along with the good deed.’

The idea of ‘Pay it Forward’ comes from the novel by Catherine Ryan Hyde’s, and then subsequent film, Pay it Forward which tells the story of a young boy who does 3 good deeds for others in need. All the child asks in return is that they pass on the good deed to three other people and keep the cycle going.

The Be Well Centre is open all year round and is a drop-in clinic for advice and promoting general health and is open to Students and Staff from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
