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
