Worthing-based Your Next Move Fitness fundraising for Teenage Cancer Trust at Goring Gap

Your Next Move’s three-hour session of sports, games and other physical activity was prompted by the case of 17-year-old Ciara Lewis, who has leukaemia and is a family member of one of the clients.

Donations to take part went to the charities supporting Ciara at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Surrey, including the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Emma Macready and Martin Footman, founders of the group, said: “We are thrilled to be making this contribution.

“Before she got leukaemia, Ciara was a keen sportswoman, which included being on the Junior GB rowing programme, and so it seems fitting that we are using sport and fitness to raise money for such an important cause.”

At the end of the fitness session, food, drink and massages were available, alongside a raffle, boosting the total raised to just over £1,000.
