Five enthusiastic members of Neil Marsh Health and Fitness, Willingham, will be taking part in a 24 hour-long energy-defying Spinathon today (Friday 6 May) and tomorrow (Saturday 7 May).
Join in and spin this weekend for Arthur Rank Hospice Charity
The team – who aim to cycle on static bikes for a whole day continuously to raise money for the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity - are inviting you to join them for an hour at any point between 3.30pm today Friday and 3.30pm tomorrow.
The epic cycling feat will take place at Highgate Farm in Willingham, with team members Steve Webster and Nicole Webster (Willingham), Anna Sperring (Over) and Janice Crane (Cottenham) teaming up alongside Neil of Neil Marsh Health and Fitness (Willingham) on their static bikes.
Neil explains the thinking behind the fundraising feat: "I want to help as many people as possible improve their health and lifestyle through exercise. Neil Marsh Health and Fitness and Arthur Rank Hospice Charity have a common goal: making a real difference to people’s lives.
“We’re really looking forward to the Spinathon on Friday into Saturday, and are inviting willing volunteers to pay £5 to join us for an hour. Not only will it be great motivation to help keep the five of us going, but it’s a novel way for you to do an hour’s exercise whilst raising money for a great charity. Many of our members’ friends and relatives have benefited from Arthur Rank Hospice’s care and services and we want to give something back and carry on making a real difference.”
If you would like to join the team for an hour slot during the 24 hours between 3.30pm Friday and 3.30pm Saturday, please call 01954 260235.
The spinners would also welcome cheers and moral support at any time of the day or night, so please feel free to visit Unit 2D-F, Highgate Farm, Over Road in Willingham between the same hours or show your support via their online donation page at http://www.justgiving.com/Neil-Marsh7
Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire living with an advanced serious illness or a life-limiting condition and those who need end-of-life care. Our ‘Outstanding’ services are provided free of charge to patients and their families.
We care for more than 4,100 patients each year at our Hospice in Cambridge, the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech and in patients’ own homes via the Arthur Rank Community Team. This care supports people to improve their quality of life and fulfil their end of their life choices.
It will cost £10.5 million in 2021/2022 to run our services, which are provided free of charge to patients and their loved ones. We have currently secured £6.98 million from the NHS, meaning that £3.52 million needs to be raised through donations, fundraising activities and trading. We are extremely grateful to our local community for the continual dedication, commitment and generosity they show in supporting us to meet this target.
