PROJECT SUMMARY

Setting up a gym to aid the local community to improve health and fitness.

BACKGROUND

Annaghmore/Eglish Regeneration and Development Association was established to act as representative voice for the rural community of Annaghmore/Eglish area and the surrounding district, in order to prevent poverty and disadvantage.  There is no training facility within a 6-7 mile radius and the lack of resources can provide social unrest for youths in the area who desire to become involved in a healthy lifestyle.  

ACTIVITIES

Funded under Axis 3, through SOAR, the project provided a gym in the Gaelic Football club for use by the local community.  Items funded included:

  • Treadmill
  • Spinlock set
  • Incline Ellipical
  • Rubber gym mats
  • Weights

The project seeks to attract 50 users per week.
