Fundraising challenge

A GYM in Eastwood raised more than it anticipated after members took on the coast-to-coast challenge.

Wendy Hulme, who runs Revolution, at Hilltop, organised for 30 gym members to bike from Cumbria to Whitley Bay last month and hoped the group would raise around £2,000 in sponsorship.

But the fitness fanatic said now all the money has been taken in they have raised over £3,500.

She said it was a ‘fantastic effort’ by the people involved.
