Celebrating 25 years of MKCCG

This is a link to an article written by Kate Olson for the British Journal of Cardiac Nursing June 2015 Vol. 10 No. 6. In it Kate interviews several members of MKCCG and one of our volunteers about their views of the organisation in celebration of our recent 25th anniversary.

MKCCG supported Diabetes UK in 2012

Our members have decided to support a chosen medical-related charity each year by donating the proceeds of a special event plus funds from other fundraising. In 2012 we supported Diabetes UK. At our Annual General Meeting on 9 November 2012 we presented a cheque for £1,338.90 to the Diabetes UK representative, Ken Plackett. .

For 2013 our members have chosen to support two local stroke-related charities Different Strokes and MK Talkback Club.

Link 2 Health & Care 27 October 2008

We were one of 60 Health or Social Care associated support groups and professionals from Milton Keynes Social Care Services and Hospital, Ambulance and Primary Care Trusts who had a stand at the event organised by the Milton Keynes Local Involvement Network. This was part of our ongoing efforts to publicise the work of our Group and the support we can offer to people with heart conditions and to their families.

Milton Keynes Volunteers Fair 3 June 2008

We ran a stand at the MK Volunteers Fair at the centre:mk in Middleton Hall on Tuesday 3rd June 2008. The purpose was both to publicise our Group and its services, and also to see if we could recruit any volunteers to help us to run the Group sessions.

We didn't put on an exercise demonstration like last year as it was difficult to get enough members together midweek, but below are a couple of photos from last year's Fair of us demonstrating the sort of aerobics we do during our exercise sessions.

First some warm-up and stretching exercises.

Then some jumping around!
