HAM FAIR. June 10th 2017

The Cambrian Community Centre went to the Fair! Our pitch (see picture) attracted much interest, and we managed to raise close to £700 for the Centre. Our thanks go to all the many people who helped; on the day, in preparation and also by donating Bric-a-brac or Tombola prizes. More pictures can be seen by clicking here.

We are very grateful to Kew Village Market for an award of £1000 towards our Gym Equipment fund. We have not replaced much equipment for many years and this year have been attempting to remedy this as reported already. This generous grant will help us make a major improvement to the standard of equipment in our gym. The picture shows our manager, Mary McDonald, on the left, and Chair, Teresa Grafton on the right, receiving the cheque from the Mayor and Lady Mayoress on 2nd October. The market runs on the first Sunday each month and is well worth a visit!

Walk The Thames

Our “Walk the Thames” Gym Fundraising Event was held on Saturday June 11th. We are delighted to say that we have raised a total of over £2000! (including donations, Quiz Winnerssponsorship and gift aid). Our mission this year was to get as many people involved as possible. 28 people took part over the day – a big increase on previous fundraising years. We hit our target of 28 miles (Thames Barrier to Richmond Bridge) during the afternoon and were able to continue on to 32 miles (back to Chiswick Bridge). A BIG thank you to everyone who helped, either by contributing to the mileage walked or by donating money!
We will shortly be replacing one of our old treadmills and this will help us to do so.

Arm Ergometer
Our new Arm Ergometer

(June 2016)  We are delighted to acknowledge that the Cambrian Community Centre has been awarded a £2,500 grant towards our recently acquired “Arm Ergometer”, a vital new piece of gym equipment.

This offers valuable exercise opportunities to gym users especially those needing to improve their cardiovascular fitness, and is particularly useful as the Centre fulfils its role supporting the new Exercise Referral programme in the borough.

We have just issued a press release which you can read by clicking here.

This equipment has been on the “wish list” of the gym team for a long time and it is great that, with the support of this funding, we are able to increase the choice to those keen to exercise as part of their recovery programme or to keep mobile as they age.
