AN EXERCISE group for people who have health problems has been awarded £10,000 to buy new gym equipment.


The Barnsley Long Term Exercise Heart Support Group, based at Carlton Pavilion, received the money from the Big Lottery and has bought exercise bikes, a cross trainer and two recumbent bikes.


Secretary Terry Murten said the group had been raising money and the new equipment was proving very popular.

The group has been running for about three years and members are able to exercise to help rehabilitation from injury, surgery or illness, and socialise at the same time.
