Kirsty and her team run health, fitness, and weight-loss classes for around 300 members, most of whom are 50+. When lockdown hit, she started live-streaming daily classes, giving motivational talks, holding virtual coffee mornings, and running quiz nights. She helped members get online to access classes as well as keep in touch with friends and relatives.
For vulnerable people, Kirsty hand-delivered essential items. She continued to adapt, ensuring covid compliance, sourcing bigger venues and providing classes at different times.
Kirsty was always a (socially distant) shoulder to cry on. Without Kirsty's classes, many members would have been much more isolated.
"What [Kirsty] has done has been nothing short of amazing, she has been there every step of the way providing support and encouragement and keeping the Borough much more active than it might have been!"
