Our 1st Wellness Day!

YLF promote employee well-being and motivation in its very first Wellness Day!

IMG_2180Professionals at IT Business, Influential Software, (www.influentialsoftware.com) had a chance to step out of the ordinary and enjoy something very far removed from a normal working day when they invited YLF to host a Wellness Day for its employees from London and Maidstone.

The programme included a Juice Bar, which started the day with Ginger Shots and ended it with Turmeric Lattes and also boasted many smoothie recipes that had major health benefits.

There was the opportunity to take part in partner yoga, as well as two additional sessions of yoga provided by Leyla Ramadan (www.houseofleyla.com).

Also on the programme was a wonderful opportunity to learn more about what a Medical Herbalist is from Caroline Drew of Chartwell Apothecary and Natural Healing Clinic (www.chartwellapothecary.co.uk). Caroline even brought a range of different teas for people to try and sample packs to take away!

For YLF, it was a great opportunity to bring something completely new into the Influential offices and to engage and motivate staff, as well as sharing information with them about the charity. Influential's employees were able to dip in and out and try different things during the day and from the positive feedback we have received, they thoroughly enjoyed the day!

IMG_2207Influential have kindly made a donation to YLF of £1,200 which will go a long way in helping the charity to continue working with young people, providing them with the support they need and to expand on the services to enable us to help more in the Kent and Medway area.

Look out for our video of the day coming soon!

We would like to say a huge thank you to John Simpson, Chief Information Officer/Director, and David Mann, Online Marketer and Designer, from Influential Software for allowing us to host our first Wellness Day at their Maidstone office. Our appreciation also goes to all of our Programme Reps, Caroline, Leyla and Craig, for taking the time to share their expertise.
