Poole Heart Support Group is a charitable organisation which is self-funding. It takes a lot of time and effort to run. The committee and helpers are all volunteers who do not charge for their work. We receive no national or local funding.
All of the members that exercise pay a small amount for each session in which they participate, which covers the majority of expenses of the trainer and the sports venue.
All our trainers are BACPR certified (British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation), and they have to undergo regular recertification to maintain their standing.
Certification and ongoing maintenance for each trainer is over £1,000.
A part of these expenses is paid for by generous donations from some of our members. However, we still need to find the additional funds to complete the payment.
We would be most grateful if you could help us by sending a donation by cheque. The cheque should be made out to “Poole Heart Support Group” and sent to the Treasurer at :
