Pumpkins prove to be great work-out tools

PUMPKIN push-ups during a Portishead bootcamp have helped raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Organised by Louise Parsons, who runs Bikini Bootcamp and The Little Black Dress Club in the town, the special exercise session saw women put through their paces using the heavy, Halloween props.

They completed push-ups, swings, burpees and sprints using the pumpkins. As a result, the participants managed to collect more than �100 in sponsorship for the good cause.

Louise, aged 37 from Portishead, said: “As a ladies only bootcamp I wanted to choose a charity that we could all connect with and being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought this was a great cause.”
