December 2019 - Mindfulness Walk
We held a Mindfulness walk and placed beautifully decorated stones with positive messages on throughout Bradgate Park to reward everyone for attending and also positively promote walking outside in the fresh air and nature. The stones were left in the natural beauty for others to collect and be surprised!
'Such a beautiful relaxing walk this weekend! Refreshing, rejuvenating and just what we needed! Thank you to The Heera Foundation friends and family for your continued support.'
