In the pink
FITNESS fanatics from Nailsea worked up a sweat at Scotch Horn Leisure Centre to raise money for Breast Cancer Research.
Husband and wife fitness instructors, Trish and Ron Davies, held a three-hour pink fitness session of step aerobics, hi-lo aerobics and pilates to mark the end of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with more than 40 people taking part in each class.
After warming down, the fit fund-raisers enjoyed pink cakes and the event raised almost £600 for charity.
Ron, of Chapel Barton, said: “People were really generous. We even had people giving us donations who couldn’t take part. We will definitely be doing it again next year.”
Also in Nailsea, children and parents attending Gemini Gymnastic Club enjoyed a pink-themed week.
They arrived at the Blackfriars Road club in their favourite pink attire, including some dads who confessed to raiding their partner’s wardrobe, and they also tucked into some special pink cakes after their energetic sessions.
A raffle and a children’s competition also helped to raise more than £150 for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
