VISITORS to Blackburn’s Islamic Lifestyle Exhibition later this month will be given a strong health and well-being message.

Cross-community organisation One Voice is bringing its award winning Baiter Sehat campaign to the event on Sunday June 22, in Jan’s Conference Centre.

It is sponsoring the Health and Well Being Zone at the exhibition offering free medical checks.

Health stands include Macmillan Cancer Improvement Partnership, No Smoking Campaign, Humraaz, Deaf Aware, Refresh Health Check, Cardiac Rehabilitation, Bowel Cancer Screening, Elements Health and Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service.

There will also be information on organ donation, forced marriage, drugs and alcohol.

It is hoped the event, celebrating the Islamic lifestyle in the UK, will become an annual event in the lead up to Ramadan.

One Voice vice-chair Abrar Hussain said:“It is imperative members of the community receive vital information about factors that influence their health and well being.”

“The Islamic Lifestyle Exhibition is a great opportunity to spread our message.”
