A Letchworth gym has raised more than £700 for Cancer Research UK with a family workout day last weekend.
CrossFit Beowulf hosted the family charity day, complete with an obstacle course for adults and children, training and refreshments.
Participants – 32 adults and 10 children – cooled down from their workouts by bidding for top prizes on offer in the auction.
Organiser Teresa Bezeck said: “It was a great success with 24 local businesses donating prizes for the raffle, which included sports massages, personal training sessions, cinema tickets and security systems.
“The total amount raised was £736.50
“Winners on the day were Spencer and Lewis Bevan, a team of two brothers.
“The Dirty Vikings are a team that exist purely to raise money for Cancer Research UK by completing a variety of strength and endurance events throughout the year.
“They chose Cancer Research UK because all of the founding members has lost friends or relatives to different types of cancer.”
