AN EXERCISE IN KINDNESS
By Brittany Corso
MEMBERS of a Belmont health centre set to close due to a lack of funding have been thrown a lifeline with a nearby exercise facility opening its doors to members when the gym officially closes next month.
Eastbrooke Medical Centre has come to the rescue of the St Lawrence Health and Well-being Centre (HAWC) by offering fitness programs to its stranded clients.
St Lawrence Marketing Manager Pip Hunt said the centre’s members, who consist of the elderly, people with disabilities and those recovering from strokes would have had nowhere to go if the Eastbrooke Medical Centre has not stepped in to help.
“Eastbrooke has saved the day.” she said.
Eastbrooke Medical Centre, also in Belmont, yesterday invited HAWC members to experience the centre’s exercise programs. It’s Manager Cynthia Matthews said the centre would give the HAWC members a hew home.
“We will offer them the best we can.” Ms Matthews said.
