Free taster sessions in nordic walking were available at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds to raise funds for charity.

Wolds Edge Holiday Lodges in Bishop Wilton teamed up with nordic walking expert Jason Feavers for the fundraiser to support Mental Health Awareness Week, which this year focussed on Mindfulness.

As well as nordic walking sessions, cakes and teas and coffees were available at Wolds Edge. The sessions were free with a suggested donation to the Mental Health Foundation. Wolds Edge and Mindfulness teacher Mr Feavers raised £150 on the day, which will be split between Mind Hull and East Yorkshire and The Mental Health Foundation, which organises Mental Health Awareness. Mindfulness is an integrative, mind-body based training that helps people to change the way they think and feel about their experiences, especially stressful experiences.
