Team in a spin for Harvey

A SPINATHON outside The Poacher pub in Portishead’s High Street has raised almost �2,000 for charity.

A team from the Fitness Hub gym, based at Kestrel Court in Harbour Road, took part in the event to support the Harvey Hext Appeal.

Harvey is a five-year-old boy with Neuroblastoma, a rare form of childhood cancer.

Gym owner Andy Cleeves and his team cycled consistently for 12 hours and raised �1,960. The Fitness Hub has been raising money for overseas treatment for Harvey since November.

Andy said: “We would like to thank The Poacher, our gym members and members of the wider community for their continued support.”
