People across Bury will receive free advice to benefit their “Health” and their “Wealth” at a number of free roadshows taking place across the summer, organised by Six Town Housing.

Experts will be on hand throughout the event to provide advice on money matters and general health, including information on how to save “dough” and gain employment skills.

The BREAD events (Budgeting, Rent, Energy, Advice and Debt) will also play host to various activities. These include free zumba and “smash badminton” sessions run by a coach from I Will If You Will, the fitness movement in Bury that is helping to get more women and girls more active, more often.

There will also be entertainment for children, including face painting, bouncy castles and giant games, such as Jenga and Connect 4.
Kelloggs and Warburtons have also donated a limited amount of cereal and bread, which will be given out to event attendees.

The roadshow will be visiting parks across the borough on Tuesday afternoons from 2pm to 6pm, complementing the I Will if You Will ‘Get More From Outdoors’ campaign which runs throughout the summer, encouraging residents across the borough to get outdoors and take advantage of what their local parks have to offer.

The first BREAD event takes place on Red Bank Field in Radcliffe on 21st July. BREAD will also visit Whitefield, Prestwich, Brandlesholme, Bury East and Ramsbottom.

John Merrick, Director of Neighbourhoods at Six Town Housing, said:

“Our BREAD events provide a fun family afternoon out and will also help local residents find out about a range of services in the area that could help make their lives easier.”

Councillor Rishi Shori, Deputy Leader of Bury Council, said:

“The events will help Six Town Housing tenants keep the kids entertained during the summer holidays and can also help signpost them to ways they can save money or maintain a healthy lifestyle.”

Six Town Housing is responsible for managing social housing stock in the area on behalf of Bury Council.
