Borderland were happy to help The Soma Space acquire weightlifting equipment for their “movement for mental health” facility at the Memorial Hall in Red Square, Oswestry.

Borderland has a history of helping local enterprises and with this donation they are helping the founders, personal trainer Jo Hazell-Watkins and psychotherapist Kevin Braddock, help local people with their mental and physical health issues.

The Soma Space concept is to work with patients in a holistic way by addressing their physical and mental issues together so that body and mind can recover and heal in unison.

The Soma has also recently received support from the national body British Weightlifting to work with groups of clients to help develop their strength and thus improve mental resilience.

Kevin Braddock said “It’s great that Borderland recognise and support the work we do. They have taken an interest in the project from the beginning, and we welcome their support which will enable us to reach more people with our initiative.”
