Activities ranging from massage to zumba were on offer at a health day in Keighley.

The event, at Central Hall in Alice Street, also provided attractions such as face-painting, healthy food tasting, beauty therapy sessions and alternative therapies. And visitors had the chance to talk to community specialist nurses about sickle cell disease and other blood disorders, heart disease – both prevention and rehabilitation – and support for people with multiple sclerosis or who have suffered a stroke.

Health visitors and a Thalassaemia Society co-ordinator were also among those present.

Organiser Janet Hall, a haemoglobinopathy counsellor with Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, said: “The aim of the event was to raise awareness of serious conditions such as thalassaemia and sickle cell, but we also wanted there to be a fun element to the day.”
