Lanky’s Guide to a Healthy Heart

Healthy Hearts
In April 2013 the LCCC Foundation was awarded £9,371 Healthy Heart Grant from northern based national heart charity, Heart Research UK, to set up a FREE year long project to 30 local primary schools, based around the Healthy Heart.

The “Lanky’s Guide to a Healthy Heart” project aims to tackle high health inequalities in the Trafford area by instilling heart-healthy lifestyle habits at a young age, encouraging children to acquire the knowledge, attitudes and behaviour that lead to healthy lifestyle choices.


Sessions take place at Lancashire County Cricket Club and include a fun and interactive presentation around the heart, 

good and bad fats, diet, exercise and salt. The children attending also take part in a 1hour Kwik Cricket activity session and make a Fruit Kebab.


A brochure is being produced at the end of the project featuring the pupils’ work and useful tips which will be given out on match days and schools will also be taking part in a pedometer competition to win a LCCC signed cricket bat.

The project so far has been a great success.

LCCC Foundation Healthy Recipe Book

Recipe BookThe Healthy Living Family Workshops, funded through The Big Lottery, provided local families with the opportunity to attend a range of sessions at Emirates Old Trafford and learn about how to cook healthy and cost effective meals from scratch, good and bad fats and the effect a bad diet can have on the body. The sessions were all led by a qualified dietician, were fun and interactive and included visits by past players to talk about their lifestyle and diet as a professional athlete. To celebrate the end of the project a healthy recipe book has been produced in conjunction with the families attending, Foundation Ambassadors and Lancashire CCC Players and is packed full of healthy ideas for family meals. Please take a look at the PDF and enjoy.
