Who are Calon+?


We have been operating since 2001 supporting the work of Carmarthenshires Cardiac Rehabilitation Service which operates out of both Glangwili Hospital in Carmarthen and Prince Phillip Hospital in Llanelli.  We operate throughout the whole Carmarthenshire. calonactivearea

Initially the Charity was called the Cardiac Rehabilitation Building fund.  We recently raised £350,000 for a purpose built unit that we occupy today.

After in-depth consultations a new plan was proposed with the Welsh Assembly Governments support to build the current Cardio-Respiritory Unit.

The Charity initially started with stalls at county shows, bingo, raffles and bottle stalls, before expanding into triathlons, boot sales, quizes and sponsored walks.  We are made up dedicated patients, their families, friends and members of the Cardiac Rehabilitation Team.

The committee meets 3 times a year to plan its activities and are actively seeking new members.

If you have some spare time, enjoy meeting people and would like to support the work of the Cardiac Rehabilitation Service by attending an event or joining the Calon+ Committee, please contact the Secretary Penny Skyrme on 01267 235151 Ext: 3917

You don’t need experience just some free time and enthusiasm!
