Tonic Health achieves Charity Status!
Tonic Health, a community hub for health and wellbeing, based in Spalding has just been granted charity status by the Charity Commission. Having located to Broadgate House in February 2015, Tonic Health and it’s sister company, Spalding Health and Wellbeing Community Interest Company, have been offering complementary therapies alongside exercise and movement classes, and community projects including an after-school healthy eating and exercise club and two different weekly sessions for people with dementia. More recently, Tonic Health, together with associated partners South Holland District Council, South Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group, and Lincolnshire Free Press, organised the first South Holland Health Promotion Day which also featured the first South Holland Health Awards.
The charity status will allow Tonic Health to have a greater impact on the promotion and awareness around good health, continuing the hard work invested in the last eighteen months. Chairman of the trustees, Michael Morris, said that the application process took six months of hard work and discussions but is worth every minute, and the team of trustees will ensure that the future of Tonic Health will continue to grow. The charity status will allow Tonic Health to apply for further funding to run projects aimed across all sectors of the community, and will benefit residents across South Holland. Funding will hopefully create some new positions for employment to run and manage projects as the charity continues to grow.
Tonic Health is based at 6 Broadgate House, Spalding, and offers a variety of activities, and also hires out consultation room and meeting room space for individuals, groups and society use. For more information visit www.tonic-health.co.uk or call 01775 725059.
Tonic Health have teamed up with the Alzheimer's Society initiative, Dementia Friends, to create a special T Shirt to commemorate Mental Health Awareness Week which takes place 16-22 May 2016.

Spalding Health and Wellbeing Community Interest Company received funding from the Bromhead Lincolnshire Healthcare Fund to set up Aktiv Kids – an initiative to get more children taking up exercise, and learning more about diet, nutrition and healthy eating. The free 12 week program will run on Thursdays from 415pm to 545pm starting on 14th April from Tonic Health, Broadgate House, Westlode Street, Spalding, and is open to any child of primary school age.
Priority will be given to children who do not regularly achieve recommended levels of exercise per week, or who have concerns regarding weight or other diet related issues.
Each session will be split, so those attending will receive 40 minutes of varied exercise, and 40 minutes of a healthy eating session. Qualified fitness instructor Nikki Cundy will be leading the exercise, with Tonic Health nutritionist Jenny Holcombe, chefs from Cook Connect, and SHDC community development officer Jess Horn leading the healthy eating.
