Guernsey wellness and fitness group, Isle Health, is now equipped to keep members warm and visible on its outdoor activities following a recent donation from Condor.
The Condor Community Fund has provided Isle Health with monies to purchase umbrellas, T-shirts, hi-vis jackets and coats, along with a small first aid kit for use by participants in its regular walks around the Island’s coast.
Megan Seward, director of Isle Health, was really pleased with the new equipment. She said: “We are very passionate about health and wellbeing so work closely with local people on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle in today’s society, so that everyone here can benefit from the positive impact it can have on physical, social and emotional well-being.
“The new gear is great as it kits out our walking groups and will encourage more to join in our regular activities so they can really get the most out of life. The support of Condor is really appreciated, as it helps us keep participants warm and well lit, particularly when we enter the darker, colder months of the year.”
Condor’s Community Fund was originally established in 2019 and supports Islanders who give up their time to develop community activities. The Fund sees numerous applications from across the Islands with a focus on sustainability, local benefit and enjoyment for others.
Greg Yeoman, Condor’s Commercial Director, commented, “The applications we receive through the Fund really show there is some fabulous work being done to support those in our community. We are delighted to support Megan and her group and hope this inspires others to get out and keep themselves fit.”
Isle Health was established in 2021 and offers a variety of bespoke exercise programmes for Islanders with medical barriers to exercise, working on a referral basis through a GP or medical professional to improve health. The group specialises in working with clinically unwell populations but offers its services to all Islanders.
