Can you help Lucy with physio research?

Hi fellow Ambleside fell runners! Are you a fell runner who has experienced an ankle sprain, then you’re the person I am looking for!
I’m a physiotherapy student and a fell runner and I’m looking into rehab methods for ankle sprains in fell runners. To do this I need some information from you. If you follow the link below and fill out my questionnaire, I would be very grateful.
I promise it won’t take long, and the information gained may help our fell running community in the future!
Thanks in advance,
Lucy Downham😊

For those with existing standing orders please make sure that the date is set to 1st January. If you don’t have standing order please consider setting one up or, if you don’t want to do this, simply transfer your £10 promptly. Thanks.

REQUEST FOR KIT – Can you help?

We have secured Dave Higson (ex paramedic and experienced mountain man) as volunteer first aid support at six of our AAC races next year. This will save the club a good deal of money as commercial providers have become more expensive recently. We need to ask if club members have any of the following they would be able to donate to the club so Dave can use them:
  • Warm blankets – we need a few
  • Light/med weight sleeping bags
  • Mountain survival bags (orange plastic ‘style’)
  • 2/3 folding chairs
  • Treatment table
  • Shelter (family tent, garden ‘gazebo’ with walls or similar)
Please reply to Dan Duxbury if you can donate any of this.
