The Flin's Fitness Charity Aerobathon 2019
The Flin’s Fitness Annual Charity Aerobathon 2019 – Sunday October 27th
We raised an incredible £7,000 plus for Cancer Research / Stand Up To Cancer! Over £5,000 via the Just Giving Page and another £2,000 in cash via the raffle and the refreshments stall at the event!
I think we more than doubled last year’s amount, due to these wonderful ladies braving the Cancer Crop Chop! Sian and Mel took to the stage at Midday to let our Nicola and Maria (King’s Hairdressing), do their thing!
Special thanks to the instructors who gave their time freely to come and present an absolutely FANTASTIC line up of sessions:
Emma, Kelly, Lauren, Carrie, Rosie F, Kevin, Jules, Michele, Beth, Tracey …. although not teaching, Rosie B came too and it was lovely to have everyone together!
As always, Lynn & Julie were rocks underpinning the foundations! Thank you girls 💜
Brilliant help from Debs and Tracey, who did not move from the refreshments … thank you girls …and I saw Nic slide behind there in between hairdressing duties as well! We raised an absolute fortune on the refreshments …. thank you so much to all those lovely bakers for the CAKE!!!!!
Peter helped us all move the kit back where it belonged, Emily helped with the raffle admin and check in desk AND sourced some amazing prizes, and ALL of the logistics at and after the event were handled by my wonderful hubs 💜
Newstead Wood, under the headship of Alan Blount, kindly donated the use of the facilities for the entire event.
There were a huge amount of wonderful treatments and prizes on offer this year …. the raffle raises so much money and is such a valuable part of the fund raising.
Thank you to the local businesses providing the prizes, and services – and for our FF members who did the asking!
