Volunteers Wanted for Barry Island MEND Programme

Would you like to help children and their families to get fitter, healthier and happier in 2015? If so, MEND in Cardiff would like your help run sessions at Barry Island Community Centre this Spring.


Sessions will run every Tuesday and Wednesday from 4:30pm – 6:30pm, starting on 20th January and ending 25th March.

What is MEND?

Mend is a fun, free 10 week programme for children and their parents. During the programme they will learn:

  • How to cook healthy and tasty food on a budget
  • What are the right portion sizes for your family?
  • How to read and understand food labels
  • How much fat and sugar is in our food?
  • All about fussy eating
  • And much, much more!

Kids will have fun and get active with in MEND exercise sessions and will have some free goodies to take home – including a t-shirt, water bottle, bag and folder full of tips for the whole family.
