GYM members helped fellow member Michelle Taylor raise £222 for cancer charities last weekend.

Michelle, from Winsford, is planning to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Kenya to raise funds for people affected by cancer.

Members of LA Fitness in Leicester Street, Northwich, took part in body combat, high intensity and spinning classes, which had been organised by Michelle.

“Everyone was so enthusiastic, although for those who took part in all three they were flagging a little towards the end,” said Michelle.

“It was great to have the support of so many friends, and I am so grateful to them for helping me raise money for this great cause.”

Fitness instructor Martin Lesko led the three fitness sessions.

During the next six months Michelle will be putting in extra hours at the gym to prepare herself for her climb in October.
