Hearty Lives Renfrewshire

The Hearty Lives Renfrewshire team are working in St Benedict's over the next 2 and a half years to promote heart health to young people.

Hearty Lives Renfrewshire is funded by the British Heart Foundation and is one of six new projects which are the latest to be funded through the BHF's £12 million Hearty Lives programme, which now includes 35 projects across the UK that have helped more than 60,000 people improve their heart health. Hearty Lives Renfrewshire will target young people aged 11-18 to reduce the coronary heart disease risk factors of low physical activity, poor eating habits, smoking and poor self-esteem.

The project officially launches on 14th February 2014 with S3 pupils from Linwood High School and St Benedicts High School taking part in activities at the ON-X. Bodyworks and Fitlab exhibits from the Glasgow science centre will give the pupils a chance to learn more about the heart at this event. On the 27th February the project will have a launch in the school with the Hearty Lives team talking to pupils and fun activities taking place throughout the day.

We will be recruiting and training young people aged 14-18 who are interested in becoming Hearty Lives peer mentors. Hearty Lives peer mentors will be trained to go out and share the heart health message with other young people in a variety of fun ways! If you are aged 14-18 and are interested in finding out more about volunteering with us as a peer mentor please speak to Mrs McCartney in the PE department.
