A church-bonding event focused on promoting good health brought big smiles to the faces of its congregation.

Free dental care and check-ups for blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol were all offered by attending health professionals on behalf of London Ghana Seventh-Day Adventist church at its fifth annual community health expo.

Held at Plaistow Park, the community celebration also offered families the chance to have fun together with a bouncy castle, music competition and tug of war.

Event co-ordinator Japheth O-Amankwah said: “The day was very rewarding as it offered families the opportunity to socialise whilst receiving free medical care.”

Attendees were also treated to free healthy juices, sandwiches and hot food.

The church, based in Chadwin Road, Plaistow, also runs a food bank every Thursday evening to support struggling families with much-needed donations.
