Member of the Month
Congratulations to our Member of the Month - Tim Benbow
Tim suffered a heart attack last year and has been going from strength to strength on the road to recovery.
Before he became ill Tim was able to do 10,000 meters on the rower. Through attending the gym 3-4 times per week he has been increasing his distance from 1,000 to 7,000! With his hard work Tim’s blood pressure has gone down and so has his resting heart rate, enabling doctors to reduce his medication.
We wish Tim all the best and a huge well done!
Our members have been doing some great things for charity over the past month. We have had 2 spinathons take place and over £1000 raised.
Mike Bernamont completed his spinathon in aid of Versus Arthritis and to support his journey to the London Marathon in April! Visit uk.virginmoneygiving.com/MikeBernamont to read more about Mike’s story and support the cause.
Becky Malone is cycling 300km through Croatia in May and is raising money for Women v Cancer.
Visit www.justgiving.com/fundraising/rebecca-malone4 to read more about Becky’s story and support the cause.
Well done to both of you and good luck with your amazing challenges later on in the year!
