On Sunday 28th October we hosted the Alive charity “Spookathon”; back to back classes starting from 10am to raise money for LostCatsBrighton and Marlets Hospice. Members, friends and curious passers-by were invited to turn up in fancy dress and take part in as many classes that they liked.
The event kicked off at 10am with Zomba, Barry incorporated a Thriller dance routine to get into the theme of things. This was followed by Break the cycle at 11am, a class mixed with Spinning and upper body circuit. At 12pm we had Yoga which was a great way to stretch out those muscles and relax!
1pm Toby, our Gym Manager, put people through their paces with 80′s Steps and the leg warmers were brought out … particularly scary! At 2pm We had Killerbells where a couple of Zombies came along to take part and we finished off at 3pm with Coprse and Stretches with Jenny to round off our Spookathon!
Throughout the day we were selling yummy cakes and treats we ran a raffle all week, which was drawn on 31st October.
Alive’s lovely crèche was open for the day, and Maz was on hand face painting the kids.
In total we raised £588.41 and wish to thank everybody who contributed! In all everybody had a great day and lots of fun!
Special thanks to some of our partners, who offered some amazing raffle tickets: Fear Brighton, Plumpton Races, Donatello, JOY, our very own Maz and Performance Foods.
