Baked Bean team fundraises for Diabetes UK through swim event

From March 22nd, The Baked Bean Charity will be taking part in Diabetes UK’s Swim 22 event.

Running over three months, students and staff will be given the opportunity to contribute to the overall 22-mile swim goal, raising vital funds to support those affected by diabetes.

The event is aimed to improve understanding around diabetes and encourage people to enjoy a healthier lifestyle and the improved mood that comes along with that. Diet and exercise is an important part of any daily routine. Our Healthy Green Beans course delivers an introduction to a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet, and demonstrates the link between physical and mental health. You can get in touch to find out more about this, and other, courses that we offer.
