Yo­gis raise £100s for hos­pice

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A COU­PLE of yo­gis raised money for a hos­pice by host­ing an event.

Sarah and David Booth held an event at their Va­ri­ety Fit­ness stu­dio in Mac­cles­field to in­tro­duce peo­ple to yoga to co­in­cide with In­ter­na­tional Yoga Day. They held classes with dif­fer­ent styles of yoga and asked for do­na­tions to East Cheshire Hos­pice.

They raised £120 which they have now handed to the char­ity.

David said: “We wanted to show the peo­ple of Mac­cles­field that Yoga can be for ev­ery­one. For those un­der­go­ing any form of treat­ment it’s an es­pe­cially use­ful way of clear­ing the mind and pro­mot­ing re­cov­ery. The hos­pice is a char­ity close to a lot of peo­ple in Mac­cles­field and has helped friends of ours so we were thrilled to raise money for them.”

Camilla Crockett, cor­po­rate fundraiser at the hos­pice, said: “I would like to say a huge thank you to Va­ri­ety Fit­ness and its clients for their sup­port. The sup­port we re­ceive from our lo­cal com­mu­nity is vi­tal to en­sure we can con­tinue pro­vid­ing our spe­cial­ist care ser­vices to those most in-need in our com­mu­nity, and we were de­lighted to be in­volved with Va­ri­ety Fit­ness’s In­ter­na­tional Yoga Day.”
