Air crash victim Matt Jones, 24, was once a member of the gym, as was Bob Holland Junior, 20, who was killed in a car accident on the diversion from the air crash.

The event raised £100 for the fund.

Nick is no stranger to marathon events. On December 6 last year, he set a new Guinness World Record for the most consecutive rounds of kickboxing, with a total of 100.
