Defibrillator equipment and training

We are holding community defibrillator training sessions on Sunday 29 March at Gwernaffield Gym as we hope to secure enough money to buy one for the gym and the local community.

Defibrillators are semi-automatic devices that help someone in a cardiac arrest and our nearest defibrillator is in the church hall in Gwernaffield, about 10 minutes away.

We have teamed up with Cadwch Curiadau ‘Keep The Beats’, a dedicated North Wales NHS charity, to provide defibrillator training to our gym members, family, friends and the wider community.

The sessions will be free but we hope people will donate towards our defibrillator fund. We think it will be a really valuable session and we are happy to be working with Cadwch Curiadau.

Find your brave

We are supporting Children’s Mental Health Week which runs from 3-9 February.

Children’s mental health charity Place2Be raises awareness on the importance of children and young people’s mental health.

The theme this year is Find your Brave.

We look at bravery in the gym as trying a new move or performing a floor routine in a competition, but it can also be moving to a new class, telling a coach something, making a new friend.

We’ll also be encouraging the girls to Find their Brave this week.
