Altogether Now for Men’s Health

Blackpool may be a seaside town and a popular place to visit for millions of people each year, but unfortunately it is not a healthy place to live.

Male life expectancy in Blackpool is the lowest in the country. This is because men are less likely to lead a healthy lifestyle — they are more likely to smoke, drink alcohol in excessive amounts and be overweight or obese. These lifestyle factors mean that the likelihood of experiencing serious health issues such as cancer, stroke and heart disease is greatly increased.

Five Minute Health Check That Could Save Your Life

Blackpool residents have the opportunity to take up a free five minute health check which could ultimately save their life.

The Altogether Now – a Legacy for Blackpool health trailer will be visiting various locations across the town from Tuesday 5 May.

Following the recent launch of the latest Altogether Now — a Legacy for Blackpool short film, Health Ambassador and football legend Jimmy Armfield has been talking exclusively to Granada Reports about his experiences of dementia.

Jimmy features in the latest Altogether Now film which centres on the ‘How Good Is Your Memory?’ campaign — aimed at raising awareness of dementia across the town.

In an interview which will air during the 6pm Granada bulletin on Thursday 19 March, Jimmy tells how he has become more aware of the condition as he himself has got older. You can view a short excerpt of the interview by clicking here.
