Charity classes for Ayrshire Hospice

03rd March 2016

Our Kilmarnock club have been running a number of fun classes to raise money for Ayrshire Hospice. The hospice provides outstanding quality care and services, which helps those with any life-limiting illness. Care is provided where there is no cure for the condition, but which improves the quality of each day for people who have a limited time to live.

The charity helps adults throughout Ayrshire and Arran with life-limiting illness such as cancer, neurological conditions, end stage heart failure and lung disease. They help people to live as actively as they can to the end of their lives - however long that may be, wherever that may be. The care they provide not only seeks to alleviate pain and symptoms, but also allows people to stay engaged with friends, family and their community. Ayrshire Hospice not only looks after people’s physical needs but also attend to their emotional, spiritual and social needs too. The patient and their family are at the centre of all the care they provide. Family members, close friends and careers are also supported both during a person’s illness and following bereavement.
 
The team at Lifestyle Fitness Kilmarnock have a great passion for this charity and have already raised £2013 in 2015 for them.
 
So what have the club been up to in order to raise money for the charity?

  • Martyn Watson, Neil Laird, Allister Kennedy and Ian Mitchel, held a two hour spinathon class
  • Eric Pawlikowski did a 1 hour back to back FBX class
  • Tim Silvester held a Grit challenge class
  • Heather Paterson held a double Insanity class

The club would like to thank all of their members for taking part and donating to this fantastic cause, they have so far raised a total of £1026 this year for the hospice.
