Staff at our National Exercise Referral Scheme Team (NERS) and their clients recently completed a charity walk in aid of Dementia UK.
The walk route took them from Trevor Basin to Llangollen Canal and back. Various Distances were available from 0.7km to 10km and all walks were led by NERS staff.
A total of £831.00 was raised through Sponsorship and donations
Everyone finished the walk back at the Chapel Tea Room and a well-deserved coffee and delicious cake was enjoyed.
The NERS team in Wrexham would like to thank all those who joined us on the walk and to all those who donated so generously for a worthy cause.
The National Exercise Referral Scheme is a Welsh Government funded scheme which has been centrally managed by Welsh Local Government Association working in partnership with Public Health Wales (PHW) since July 2007.
The aim of the Scheme is to reduce the inequalities in ill health by providing access to tailored and supervised physical activity. The target population is aged 16+ who are not used to being regularly physically active and are at risk of or currently experiencing a long term or chronic health condition. The Scheme is designed to provide opportunities to exercise that are fun, rewarding and that can be incorporated into everyday life.
