Thank you for stopping to read this and now that I have your attention....

Did you know that you could help make a difference to the lives of others, have some "craic" and possibly make new friends while doing so?

Are you available on a Wednesday morning from 10.30am - 12.30pm?

If so then Chest Heart & Stroke are recruiting volunteers for their Post Rehabilitation Exercise Programme (PREP) group in Derry/Londonderry, which meets in Templemore Sports Complex, Buncrana Road.

PREP is a community based post statutory rehabilitation patient education and physical activity support service for people who have had a stroke.  Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke (NICHS) care services offer those affected by chest, heart and stroke conditions an opportunity to take part in a programme of activities and socialise with those who have been through a similar experience.  No personal care is involved.
