New Years Resolutions and Dry January

During the lull between Christmas and New Year, whilst many of us are away from work and school, we spend time reevaluating our choices, habits and lifestyles and many of us attempt to decide on a New Year's resolution or two. From cutting back on unhealthy food cravings and quitting smoking, to getting healthier and joining (and attending!) a gym, learning a new skill, procrastinating less and looking after our money, we all need a little inspiration and motivation, and we all need to remember it's never too late to make a lifestyle change.

Many people choose to reduce their alcohol intake; and, for the past five years Alcohol Concern have campaigned for Dry January, encouraging people to give up alcohol for the month and become more aware of the health effects of drinking alcohol. According to Alcohol Concern, of those who take part, almost 80% of participants saved money, 62% slept better and had more energy and almost half of the participants lost weight. That's three advantages there already... If you would like more information and advice, see the Drink Aware website.

We held our annual Fleet Phoenix Christmas Concert on Wednesday 14 December. It was a fantastic night that showcased some very talented young people from our Smart Music and Jammin projects. We also raised over £300 on thie night through door entry donations and a raffle.

Smart Music is a music project supporting young musicians aged 11-25 years old. It is a referral project offering FREE guitar and drum tuition giving young people an amazing opportunity to learn, develop and be creative.

Lung Cancer Awareness Month

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month which aims to raise awareness of the disease and provide people with the early signs and symptoms. Did you know lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer related death in the United Kingdom? Over 41,000 people are diagnosed with the condition every year, as according to the NHS. The most common cause of lung cancer is smoking. Smoking can increase the risk of developing lung cancer and other cancers including cervical and mouth cancer. People who have never smoked can also develop the condition as a result of passive smoking. What to look out for:

  • A bad cough which doesn’t go away for at least 3 weeks, or that changes and becomes more severe.
  • Unexplained, persistent breathlessness.
  • A chest infection that won’t go away even when it has been treated with antibiotics.
  • Hoarseness or swelling of the face and neck.
  • Coughing up phlegm with signs of blood in it.
  • Pain in the chest or shoulders when breathing or coughing.
  • Tiredness and weight loss.

Seek advice from your GP, if you have any of the above symptoms. Macmillan Cancer Support has lots of information regarding signs and symptoms, explaining what cancer is, what treatments are available and further information & support. www.macmillan.org.uk


Mental Health Awareness Day

Monday 10 October 2016 is Mental Health Awareness day. It’s a global campaign day to educate and raise awareness of Mental Health. According to the Mental Health Organisation 1 in 6 adults have had a common Mental Health problem in the past week; 1 in 3 of us, in England, have reported having experienced a traumatic event in our lifetime, which can affect our Mental Health and wellbeing; this includes Depression, Anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. If we don’t act urgently, by 2030 DEPRESSION will be the leading illness globally!

If you’ve been feeling low and aren’t sure why or you’d like support, contact your GP. There is lots of information relating to Mental Health and emotional wellbeing here.

Sexual Health Week 12-18 September 2016

This week is Sexual Health week. In 2015 there were more than 430,000 STI diagnoses around the UK; across the Western world, the UK remains to have high rates of STIs, and it's not only amongst young people.

What is an STI, and who gets them? An STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection passed on between people through sexual contact. Anyone can get an STI through sexual contact and you don't have to have had multiple partners to be at risk. However, the more partners you have the higher the likelihood that you will come into contact with someone with an STI.

How do I know if I have an STI? You can attend a Sexual Health clinic to be tested, or visit your GP. If you are aged 15-24 years you can order a Chlamydia test kit through the NHS, or if you are aged over 18 years you can order an STI test kit which tests for HIV, Syphilis, Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea. Hepatitis B and C tests are also available. Click here for more information.

How do I protect myself? There are a number of different options when it comes to choosing which contraception or protection option are best for you. We distribute condoms at Fleet Phoenix from The Point Youth Centre during our drop in projects.

If you are aged 16-24 years you can order free condoms online from the NHS.



Fleet Phoenix Trophy Day

Southwood Golf Club held their annual Fleet Phoenix Trophy Challenge on Sunday 31 July. Each year since we were their Charity of the Year, in 2012, Southwood Golf Club have held this competition and helped raised funds for us. The golf club and it's members have continued to support us and welcomed us back this weekend again for the competition, presenting us with a donation during the award ceremony. Managing Director, Charlotte Tickner, thanked everyone for their continued support and updated everyone on the charity's developments over the past year, talking about how we have developed and invested in the organisation, our plans and aspirations for the future and how support like their's makes a difference to the services that we can offer local young people.


Scam Jam 2016

On Saturday 23 July the sun was shining and excitement running high for our annual freestyle BMX and scooter competition. The competitors were aged 7 to 25 years, and they demonstrated fantastic local talent. The atmosphere was exhilarating with all of the competitors and supporters cheering everyone one; encouraging riders to take their skills to the next level and successfully land their ‘best tricks’. The event saw well over 200 people attend, with an inflatable obstacle course, bouncy castle, badminton and other outdoor games to occupy and entertain those who were not competing, it has become a great family fun day.

For the third year a trophy was awarded for Best Air, a talent that Alex Godbold was locally well known for and whose family have sponsored the event for the past 3 years. This year's winner was Jake Kennedy, aged 15.

Our Training Manager and SCAMJam event organiser Maddie Brown said "This year’s SCAMjam has been another successful event and is a really exciting day in the year for local young riders. The atmosphere and peer support this year was heart warming and we’ve seen some amazing talent from all of the contestants. We’d like to thank the Godbold’s for sponsoring the event and the volunteers for giving up their time and supporting the team today. Without them all we wouldn’t be able to run this event".


Anti-Boredom Month

Did you know that this month is Anti-Boredom month? No, neither did we. With the summer holidays around the corner and some less than favourable weather forecasted, summer boredom may just raise its head a little earlier than normal. However, there is plenty to do and see in the local area: Fleet carnival is on from 1 July till 3 July with the Carnival Procession on Saturday 2 July, our annual Scam Jam event is being held on Saturday 23 July, plus every Thursday 7-9pm we are running our Summer Scam programme on The Views, see our Whats On page for more information.
Also, the last week of July is National Parks Week and with the New Forest on our doorstep and the South Downs not too far either, why not visit and take a walk with your family through the forest or along the coast?



Summer Scam 2016

Our Summer Scam project is returning on 30 June. From 7 - 9pm we'll be at The Views Meadow offering young people the opportunity to engage and build healthy and respectful relationships with supporting partners. We offer a BBQ, inflatables, team games and youth issue related workshops and experiences.





Scam Jam Preparation

We need your help! Ahead of this year's Scam Jam, which will be held on Saturday 23 July, we need your support to prepare the Skate Park. On Saturday 18 June we will be meeting at the Skate Park at 10:30 am to clear, sweep and paint the Skate Park. We'd really appreciate your help. Thank you.






12 in 12 challenge: Complete!

From May 2015 to May 2016 Gavin England embarked on a personal challenge to complete 12 obstacle course races (OCR’s) in 12 months. Along the way he managed to convince a variety of friends and colleagues to join in the ‘fun’. OCR’s are gruelling challenges, ranging from 10K mud runs with full body submersions to multi obstacle races with fire jumps, gruelling trails and overgrown woodlands to navigate. This month they took part in the main and final event, The Rat Race Dirty Weekend. It professes to be the biggest, longest and most challenging obstacle race in the world with 200 individual obstacles along the way. This was the 'challenge of all challenges' that Gavin England, Tom Lyons, Rafal Kubica and Dariusz Panasiuk completed to raise the staggering amount of over £2000 for Fleet Phoenix and a similar amount for Stepping Stones DS.

Maddie Brown, Assistant Manager said, “I am delighted by the team’s efforts to raise the amount of money that they have, their accomplishments are truly admirable and we will be eternally grateful of their support”.

Well done guys and thank you!! If you would like to sponsor them please follow this link: 12 in 12 challenge




Time for Tea?!

As a nation of (traditionally) tea drinkers many of us often rely on a good kick of caffeine to start the day.

We often find that having a cuppa during a session can actually work as a really good tool to get people talking, be it a general chat or a specific conversation. A cup or two a day is acceptable but many people, young and old alike, consume large amounts of caffeine, many through energy drinks.

Energy drinks may be linked to a number of health issues, especially so when mixed with alcohol. Containing a high level of caffeine, which is a stimulant, they are often consumed excessively and often mixed with alcohol, a depressant. Energy drinks causing a 'wide awake' feeling despite alcohol consumption can result in a perception of increased energy and lack of tiredness, combined with an increase in vulnerability and risky behaviour from the effects of alcohol. The loss of inhibition can result in behaviours including violence and unprotrotected sex. There are also a number of potential health effects associated with energy drink consumption including caffeine overdose (leading to palpitations, convulsions, nausea and vomitting, high blood pressure, and potentially even death), Type 2 Diabetes, fertility and pregnancy complications, poor dental health and Obesity.

It's been suggested that energy drinks are no better at 'waking us up' as a good coffee is, but excessive coffee or tea drinking can also be linked to health issues. If you feel as though you need the extra energy consider why. Are you sleeping enough? Eating the right foods? Have you been ill? Consider seeing your GP if you're worried about your tiredness or energy levels.
