Do you enjoy volunteering and working out at the Gym?

If so, we have a wonderful Group Gym program for people who are blind and vision impaired and we are looking for some volunteers who could assist us.

Chat as you help someone change weights and safely move between equipment.
Sessions are led by a YMCA Personal Trainer.
Sighted Guide training and support provided.

Where: Hawthorn Aquatic & Leisure Centre
When: Tuesdays 3pm to 4pm.

The key purpose for the Hawthorn Group Gym program is to provide a fun and safe opportunity for participants who are blind and vision impaired to enjoy getting fit and working through a tailored gym program. You will need to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to apply.

It's a great way to meet new people, have some fun and become involved in a great program.
