Wellbeing sessions aimed at supporting and empowering girls and young women are taking place in Great Yarmouth from February.

Lindsey Gray-Read, a mother from Lowestoft, is offering a free six-week course for 10 to 14 year old girls to help them tackle issues such as self-confidence, finding hobbies and body image.

The event, which is called #ForYou, will take place from 10am at St George's Theatre Cafe, starting from Saturday, February 26.

Mrs Gray-Read, 35 and originally from Bradwell, hosted online fitness and wellbeing events for families and young women during lockdown with her company Victorious Living.

Mrs Gray-Read realised that many of the girls in her sessions suffered with anxiety, low self-esteem and said their only hobbies were TikTok.

She said: "I just felt if I could help young girls get interested in fitness, healthy lifestyles and grounded with a hobby, I think they would be better off than just looking at a screen."

The sessions will encourage girls to talk about body image, healthy living habits and exploring other hobbies such as arts and crafts.
