"absolutely life changing course.  Clear, unpatronising, friendly, inventive, funny, informative, and crucial approach to self-care, nutrition, and exercise.   Lawrence is a gem, and both he and Oliver were born to be communicators, both are highly skilled at imparting information with great humility, humour, and both possess a wealth of knowledge and great soul.  They seem to understand how to incorporate these vital life survival skills whilst inside the mind of depression and debilitating anxiety, without ever being anything less than empathetic and caring.  Wonderful people.  I am so glad I got myself to attend this course."

HMHB:  Back working with users

Delighted that our walks, fitness sessions, and our fantastic Course are all back working with our amazing users in Islington, Camden, Haringey and Hackney.  And we are looking to branch out even further.


HMHB Win Mayor Civic Award 2022

For our "Outstanding Work in the Community during the pandemic", HMHB, nominated by local Councillor Sue Lukes, won a Mayor Civic Award.  Here is Lawrence picking up our certificate.  HMHB is extremely proud of this wonderful accolade.


health packs

Between April 2020 and March 2021, HMHB produced 50 Weekly Health Packs, around 26 pages every week.

All 50 in PDF form on this website.

From May 2021 to November 2021 we changed to 36 page Monthly Health Packs.

From February 2022, we revamped the monthly packs, still 36 pages, with more content.  Check out our pack pages for more details on their content, and PDFs to download.

We have to thank funders for allowing us to continue this, as well as Lazza for his dedication and efforts.


recipe page

Between April 2020 and March 2021, HMHB produced weekly health packs, and from issue 3 our Lazza produced a new recipe each week he had never cooked from scratch before.

He produced 48 of them, now in PDF form on our recipe page.  Do check them out.

The new monthly health packs will include a mixture of new and older recipes which will be in PDF form too on recipe page.  So there are now currently around 60 to try.

We have to thank funders that allow this fantastic source to happen, and Lazza for his astonishing cooking skills.

With MEGA thanks to the National Lotter Community Fund Awards For All, HMHB have been awarded a grant in June 2022 to continue our wonderful work.

We have to thank Voluntary Action Islington for their help with our application, but most of all our terrific users, without whom we would be nothing.

You guys inspire us every day and make HMHB a real pleasure.  :-)


walking challenge

Through Walk With A Doc, HMHB has successfully completed online walks up Kilimanjaro, along the Grand Canyon, through London, and will soon be travelling a different route.

We are evry poud to be part of the worldwide Walk With A Doc network.



Health Blog

Due to having to complete other projects, we have not added to the health blog for a while, but this will change in the next few weeks.

However there are many entries there, and they are definitely worth a look.


Funding from camden

A small funding grant enabled us to provide a personal trainer for our indoor Tuesday session at Highbury Leisure Centre.

We are still there Tuesdays, so do come along and join us at 9:30am, as we also work with Kentish Town Job Centre clients.

Lottery funding has allowed this wonderful session to carry on.


2021 course with HWN

HMHB delivered a fantastic Ajani course for Haringey Well Being Network funded by Haringey Giving.

This course started in February 2021 and finished in May 2021.  Check out the feedback at the top of this page.  Wow!!!.

We are hoping to return there when we get core funding.



Delighted to announce HMHB finally ventured into the online class environment.

So far we have provided our course online, as well as Zumba sessions and our weekly fun quiz.

We are exploring other exciting projects with local organisations to provide events for their users too.  This idea came through a survey we did with our users, so we have to thank you. 



Our Ajani Mindset course has completed with Haringey Well Being Network.

Delighted to have Oliver join myself and Dean.

Focusing on Mind-set, Nutrition, Exercise and Health, our unique delivery once again creating terrific feedback, as seen at top of this page.

Lawrence presented on 11 March to over 100 DWP Universal Credit staff around this course.  Hoping for good news with that.


quiz night

HMHB started our very own quiz night, which is accessible for people of all ages and abilities as very little actual intelligence is required.

It is more about having some fun with friends.

A Zoom link is sent out to people, so if you would like to participate please contact us.  We have a terrific laugh, and there have been some cracking answers so far.

Quiz: every Thursday evening at 7:30pm

HMHB resumed their weekly Izzwalkz CP around Clissold Park in April.

We meet outside Highbury Grange Medical Practice and leave at 11am.  This is a more leisurely walk, and more about older people, but all are welcome.



Last year we were running an outdoor Sunday Zumba session, with a permit from Islington Council.  This was followed by a picnic.

Very happy to update that we have restarted our Zumba every Sunday at 12pm, followed by the picnic (weather permitting)

Our wonderful Karina once again leads us through some moves.  Do come and join us on Highbury Fields


social outings

We have restarted our trips and outings.  So far we have visited the British Library, Natural History Museum, Science Museum, the English National Opera, Sky Garden, and have plans for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London Zoo, Docklands Museum, and many others.

Hopefully upcoming funding will allow us to do much more.
