Charity gym given cash boost

A CHARITY that helps to rehabilitate people who have suffered strokes and brain injuries has received a grant of more than £4,000 to help pay for specialist gym equipment.

Reach For Help provides support for people to help improve their lifestyle through regular exercise, rehabilitation and nutrition advice.

As part of their falls prevention scheme to reduce the number and impact of falls among the older population, the charity wanted to buy eight items of specialist gym equipment.

They applied to Daventry District Council (DDC) for some capital grant funding and have been awarded £4,452 towards the cost.

Any organisations wanting information about the grants scheme can contact Katie Arnold at DDC on 01327 871100.
