Tonic Health, a community hub for health and wellbeing, based in Spalding has just been granted charity status.
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.
Its community projects include an after-school healthy eating and exercise club and two different weekly sessions for people with dementia.
More recently, Tonic Health, together with South Holland District Council, South Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group and the Free Press, organised the first South Holland Health Promotion Day and Awards.
The new status, awarded by the Charity Commission, will allow Tonic Health to have a greater impact on the promotion and awareness around good health.
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.
