We say goodbye to much-loved gym member Ann Donald

Gym member Ann Donald passed away this week and will be much missed by all of us in the gym. Ann had been coming to Ability Bow for over a year and had become known to us a hard-working and determined, very lovely lady. She overcame a number of adversities during that time, including breaking her ankle and she inspired us with her tenacity and her can-do attitude to any obstacles presented before her.

Ability Bow Strategy Day

On 18th February we held our annual Ability Bow Strategy Day. The Strategy Day is an 'away day' where everyone involved with the running of Ability Bow can get together and look back on what we have or have yet to achieve in the last year and look forward to what we want to make happen over the next few years.
