Change Of Heart For Isle Of Wight Charity

Members of the Heart Care Club voted to rebrand and rename the group on Saturday (April 20).

The group will now transfer all assets to the newly formed charity, which is called Wight Cardiac Rehab.

The Heart Care Club has been in existence on the Isle of Wight since 1991 providing support to Island residents, currently facilitating 11 classes weekly at various locations, all led by Lyn Smith.

That support will continue under the remit of the newly formed charity.

Wight Cardiac Rehab, like its forbearer, was established to provide a facility for people with heart conditions, particularly those recovering from heart attacks or heart surgery, and to improve and preserve the quality of their lives by continued support and guidance.

A spokesperson for Wight Cardiac Rehab said:

"The Charity will allow the pursuit of charitable activities for the benefit of people on the Isle of Wight with a diagnosed heart condition or who have experienced a cardiac event to return to health so as to be able to lead a healthy and fulfilling life.

"The first of these charitable activities is a sponsored walk on Sunday 28 April."

Participants can be referred by their GP. A referral form can be found on the WCR website.
