Come and grab your free popcorn and nacho snack and join us in our special “Lunch Out” [link] event featuring a pedal-powered cinema inside a Geodome! We will be showing films such as Kes and Goonies – designed to appeal to a male audience! There will also be burd box building, free nachos and chilli, and den building for families. It’s taking place on Wednesday 15th June, 1:30-5pm, at East Leeds Cricket Club, Pontefract Lane (see flyer)

Tune in on Thursday 16th June, 10:30 – 11:30 am, to BBC Leeds (92.4FM / 774AM) and join us for a live phone-in on men’s health. Alongside our own Men’s worker Damian Dawtry, you can also pose questions to Professor Alan White (Centre for Men’s Health, Leeds Beckett University) and Timothy Taylor, from Public Health, who commissioned the report. We will also be joined by Derek Green, from our very own Space2 Men’s Group in Seacroft!
Firday 16th June 6 – 7pm.
And if you miss that, then tune in again to Chapel FM [http://www.chapelfm.co.uk – link]) where men from the Space2’s Men’s Group, as well as Errol Murray from Leeds Dads, will join other guests for a music and discussion show about men’s health.
During Men’s Health Week we are also proud to be taking part in the launch of the “State of Men’s Health in Leeds” report, on Monday 13th June. There, our Men’s Insight and Development Worker will be joining a question and answer forum alongside Professor White and Timothy Taylor.
Please join us at the Orion Partnership for these exciting events and make Men’s Health Week a week to remember!
Don’t forget that we also have our four men’s groups running in East Leeds that you can join. There is the Space2 Men’s Group [link] in Seacroft and the three Health Gateway groups [link] in Gipton, Compton Road area and Cross Green.
