Ranches Ladies Welcomes Ally Collishaw



Ally Collishaw is a physiotherapist with Optimal Fitness gym and specialises in women’s health.  Issues that don’t always get discussed will be spoken about by Ally.  Come and hear what she has to say. It’s for the good of women everywhere. 


  • The committee has allocated 20,000 dirhams as a donation to the charity Al Ihsan for their Back to School Programme. I would like to thank all Ranches Ladies who helped make this possible by fund-raising for Ranches Ladies throughout the year.  As we were in excess of what we needed to run the club we were able to make this donation, Carole.
  • Melody Kissoon has resigned from the Board due to family duties in Europe for the next few months.  We would like to thank her for all the work she did while on the Board  and she has already indicated she is always willing to help out where needed.
  • Carole needs the help of an administrative assistant to help with the paperwork for the CDA.  Ideally it would be someone with office experience who is familiar with Gmail and can scan and file documents.  It’s a committee/board position and hopefully the person would be here for the next 1-2 years minimum.  Contact Carole personally or send an email to
