Boot Camps for Charity

Thank you to local personal trainer Matt Smart who organised a series of boot camps with donation to be made to Ark Cancer Centre Charity. Matt, who was inspired by Merv Rees at a presentation at a local networking group, also challenged himself to complete 300 burpees in 30 minutes after his final class on 18th December. Sponsorship poured in and Matt (not surprisingly) completed the challenge. Thank you to everyone who lost pounds (lbs) and raised pounds (£) in aid of the charity - over £800 was raised - a fantastic result.
