SPEAR Health & Wellbeing Day – A great success

September 26th saw Ace of Clubs partner with SPEAR, the homeless health link service, to bring a Health & Wellbeing day to the centre, and our service users. Opening the doors at 10am our service users arrived to a free breakfast and a warm welcome by the SPEAR team and volunteers. 
Throughout the day service users were able to access free haircuts, courtesy of barber Cori, health checks with NHS nurses, massages from Paul at Massageworks, dental checks, fresh clothes and more, before settling in to another free meal for lunch, before heading off with a SPEAR goody bag packed with lots of goods and essentials.
The day was incredibly busy and a huge success delivering 190 free lunches, 22 haircuts, 21 health checks and a number of Flu and COVID vaccines.
We are thankful to SPEAR and all our other partners and volunteers who made the day possible, and allowed our service users to access vital checks, meals, and community. We look forward to the next event!
