Boot camp raises £2,300 for local children

Ex-Hollyoaks star, Sarah Jayne Dunn, joined Cheshire Fitness and around 100 energetic individuals on Saturday, 31st March, for a Boot Camp session with a difference!

The trainers put those attending at Wilmslow High School through their paces during an event which raised £2,300 for local terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children.

Participants were invited to pay £10 per head for the one and a half hour session – and they certainly got their money's worth! The trainers put them through a tough session including towing tractor tyres, boxing, squats and some very energetic team games!

All funds raised have gone to local charity, The Children's Adventure Farm Trust, who provide holidays for children in desperate need at their 10 acre Cheshire site.

The Big Boot Camp was the brainchild of Greg Johnson and Glenn Williams, founders and Directors of Cheshire Fitness. It was their plan to bring together a large group of people to take part in a mass fitness session whilst raising money for a cause very dear to their hearts. The team of six highly qualified trainers from Cheshire Fitness donated their time for free on Saturday to make the event a success.

Helen Crowther, fundraiser at the Adventure Farm took part in the session and comments: "We really can't thank Greg, Glenn and the guys from Cheshire Fitness enough, they worked so hard to make the event run smoothly and have raised an amazing amount of money. As well as those paying to take part, there were some large donations from some of Cheshire Fitness's clients meaning a staggering £2,300 was raised!

It was a tough session, but Cheshire Fitness made it fun and achievable for everyone. It was wonderful to see so many people turn up for the event, they all put 100% into the Boot Camp and were so supportive of our charity."
