As we are instructed to stay at home, away from friends and non-immediate family, this can affect not only our physical health but also our mental well-being. Feelings of anxiety unhappiness and/or loneliness… All these emotions are completely natural during the current global pandemic.

We at Reedham Children’s Trust understand the importance your mental well-being and strive to make sure our young people have their needs meet during this difficult time.

Exercise is a good way to keep our bodies fit, healthy but also plays a vital role in improving our mental health, especially when emotions can be running high.

As part of our Achieving More project, our Ambassador, Team GB Olympic International Hockey Player, Henry Weir - will be helping us to transform the lives of many vulnerable children.


Henry became an Ambassador for Reedham Children’s Trust earlier this year and has always been passionate about helping others. Born in Croydon, Henry attended one of the schools within our ‘Achieving More’ project, Smitham Primary School.


As well as helping us to raise funds for the most disadvantaged children; Henry has shared a selection of small but effective workouts you can do at home, to combat any stresses and anxieties you could be facing right now. Henry has also written a short blog on why mental fitness is so important. Read it here.
