Students at City of Wolverhampton will be pedalling their way to healthy eating on a smoothie-making bike next week.
The stationary exercise bike – fitted with special blenders that whip up delicious fruit smoothies as the rider pedals – is one of the attractions at a health fair at the college’s Paget Road and Wellington Road campuses on January 12 and 14.
Students will also be able to tuck-in to free fruit snacks donated by Sainsbury’s and Asda and pick up advice and information from a range of local organisations including Healthy Minds, Balls to Cancer, Better Off in Wolverhampton, Aspiring Futures and the Terrence Higgins Trust.
Andrea Dill-Russell, director of student services at the college, said: “The health and wellbeing of our students is very important to us as it can impact on their attendance at college and their ability to learn and achieve their qualifications.
“The health fair is an opportunity for them to find out about support services available in the local area, as well as have some fun, get some exercise, and learn about healthy eating by making drinks on the smoothie bike.”
