MRSA Action UK: Blackpool children rise to the challenge on Global Handwashing Day

Today is Global Handwashing Day, and millions of children and adults are taking part in events around the world.  MRSA Action UK will be joining the children at the Cherwell Centre to celebrate Global Handwashing Day by using the lesson plan designed by the Health Protection Agency’s e-Bug team.

Pupils in schools across the UK will be washing their hands at the same time in a Guinness World Record attempt. The challenge has been organised by the Health Protection Agency's e-Bug team in collaboration with School Councils UK.

The children at the Cherwell Centre are always keen to learn and Maureen Horn, Cherwell Centre Manager, has championed hand hygiene, together with learning about healthy eating and growing food with the children on Grange Park for a number of years. It is always a pleasure to join her and all her helpers and to help promote this important day.

We are now at the start of the flu season and the lesson deals with respiratory hygiene, all of this helps with staying healthy and cutting absenteeism from illnesses such as colds, viral infections and tummy bugs.

The Cherwell Centre rises to the challenge for Grange Park, Blackpool again!
