Keep fit enthusiasts at a Weston fitness studio have given Weston Hospicecare a new year cash boost.
Toogoods Fitness – which operates out of Gobbles Farm in Wolvershill Road – traditionally opens its doors to women only for its HIIT, Boxfit, yoga classes and personal training.
However, for one week each year, its 100-strong membership is invited to take along their menfolk, meaning husbands, boyfriends, brothers and pals get to sample some of the high-energy workouts too.
They are encouraged to make a charity donation in return for their participation in the classes – which saw Toogoods Fitness owner Kelly Toogood paying a visit to the hospice’s Jackson-Barstow House this week to hand over a bumper donation.
Kelly presented the hospice with £484.60 raised by Toogoods members – the third year running that she has donated to Weston Hospicecare.
Kelly said: “A lot of clients have family members who have been helped by the hospice, so we’re very happy to help the hospice because of the amazing support for the community.
“I am always keen to ensure we can offer our support to a cause within our local community.”
The donation was accepted by Simon Angear of Weston Hospicecare, who said: “The hospice could not survive without support from across the community, so we’re enormously grateful to Kelly and everyone at Toogoods Fitness for such a marvellous donation.
“It’s wonderful to know that the care our clinical team has provided for family members of some of the Toogoods group has motivated them to support us.”
