Winning ways - Run by founder Anne-Marie Burford and her son James Gopala Burford, Harrogate's Yorkshire Centre of Wellbeing won the award of Wellbeing Centre of the Year 2020/21.

Anne-Marie Burford said: "As a wellbeing centre we need to focus not only on our own communities needs but those of the wider community.

"We cannot, therefore, ignore what’s happening in the Ukraine and need to do whatever we can do to help

"While many of us are donating clothes etc, funds are also very much needed

"That's why we are asking people to support if you can, our fund raising coffee morning and social on Saturday, March 19 from 11am to 12.30 pm at the centre."

Yorkshire Centre for Wellbeing is also known for its retreats which are held both at the centre and abroad and allow for a greater discovery of wellbeing to you or me.

The centre is also running more free community events, the next being a Wellbeing Walk on April 3 around Pateley Bridge

This will be followed by a shared Easter lunch from noon to 2pm on April 13.

Anne-Marie Burford said: "If anyone has ideas and suggestions for events they may like to see happening at your community “wellbeing centre” please let us know, we would love to see more of you getting involved."
