Today members of the Surrey Community Football League spoke at the Surrey Health & Wellbeing Conference held in Woking.
Elliot from Guildford & Waverley and Nick from Woking Minders both explained how physical exercise has helped in their lives. We have had some great feedback from delegate.
Maya Twardzicki -Public Health Lead at Surrey County Council writes
Thank you so much to all of you for coming and making a moving and compelling start to the workshop. Please pass on my sincere thanks to Elliott and Nick.
I heard the words "inspirational" said by several people about the testimonials- including by the Director of Public Health
I myself was truly moved by the heartfelt testimonials, the amazing transformation in health and wellbeing that membership of Woking FC facilitated!
Another PH facilitator said: " I found the speakers really inspiring. I thought that it showed everyone there the 'on the ground' outcomes of making changes at a higher level which made the day feel even more important. "
Surrey Nature Partnership tweeted from the event "capturing lots of ideas after inspirational talks from members at Woking FC and the mental health football league"
