Work­ing out a great way to help ap­peal

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OFF THE RECORD -

KEEP fit fans from far and wide came to­gether in the name of char­ity. Class mem­bers of Rose­mary Con­ley fit­ness clubs in Ash­ford, Folkestone and Dover, met at the Pent Val­ley Leisure Cen­tre for a spon­sored aer­o­bics ses­sion. The three 30-minute spon­sored classes in­cluded an aer­o­bic warm-up and salsa class fol­lowed by ton­ing. Caro­line Ward, who runs classes in Folkestone, Ash­ford and Dover, or­gan­ised the event, which saw 53 peo­ple work­ing out. She said: “I’d like to say a big thank you to ev­ery­one who took part and also to Lisa Thatcher and Lind­sey Peters who came along to sup­port the event. “I’d also like to thank Wilt­shire Green­gro­cers in Black­bull Road, Folkestone, for do­nat­ing 60 ba­nanas to give to ev­ery­one.” The af­ter­noon raised about £1,000 for Can­cer Re­search. Mrs Ward added: “Ev­ery­where you turn there’s some­one who is af­fected by can­cer and it’s such a worth­while char­ity. “We are al­ready plan­ning a big fundrais­ing ball for Au­gust next year when ev­ery­one will be wel­come.”
