Rainbow Hub is delighted that its 2022 Workoutathon was supported by over 80 people and is on track to raise £5,000 to help support children and young people with physical and neurological disabilities.
The eighth annual Workoutathon, which was supported this year by JMW Solicitors LLP and Furness Building Society, took place in The Great Room, Preston North End Football Club, Sir Tom Finney Way, Preston on 20th February.
Everyone loved the fact that it was back live after having to go virtual last year and they took part in three hours of fun filled workouts including Rockbox, Zumba, HIIT, Body Combat/Attack and Freestyle Yoga with energy and enthusiasm.
The classes were taken by qualified fitness instructors – Rachel Burrows, Joanne Berends-Sheriff, Gill Walmsley, Roz Edwards, Steve Jenkinson and Rachel Holland – who all gave up their time free.
A raffle with some fabulous prizes helped raise more funds thanks to Yoga Leggs, Clitheroe Cryo, Neom Organics, Victoria Cakes, The Market Ale House, BonBons Coffee Bar and Lavender & Thyme Artisan Catering.
Lyndsay Fahey, Chief Executive, Rainbow Hub, said “this fantastic event has been popular from the beginning. Everyone was sad when we had to go virtual last year, due to the pandemic, but everyone was so delighted it was back live.
We would like to thank all those who supported the event, especially JMW Solicitors and Preston North End Football Club for allowing us to use their facilities.
We are also extremely grateful to everyone who gave up their time to help especially the instructors, Ultrasec for attending to provide first aid if needed, Gareth Edwards Photography and Kat and Emma from our fundraising team who organised the event so well.”
Participants were also able to sign up for the Annual Rainbow Hub Ramble which will take place on 21st May 2022.
