Exercise is important, but good relationships are just as critical when it comes to mental health.

That’s the message of this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week, which ends on Sunday.

Tonic Health and Spalding Hockey Club managed to combine both in a hockey match intended to promote and raise awareness of dementia and mark the beginning of the week.

The match, organised by Tonic Health, was played by members of Spalding Hockey Club at Glen Park, Surfleet, on Saturday.

Over 25 players turned out for the family-friendly fixture, wearing promotional shirts featuring the Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Friends logo.

Tonic Health is involved in the organisation and running of two dementia projects by Spalding Health and Wellbeing.

The centre hosts Movement4Memory and Craft4Memory, which are run on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

These projects are funded through the Dementia Support Network and are open to anyone who wishes to come along, and for their carers and family members.

For further information on either of the projects, please call 01775 725059 or visitshawcic.com Visit mentalhealth.org.uk for more about the week.
