Three charities have benefited from a fundraising drive by members of Curves - a ladies’ gym in Hassocks.

Several members of the gym are battling cancer and they were keen to do all they could to support three worthwhile organisations which help children and adults facing serious illness.

The Macmillan Nurse Appeal, Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice and St Peter and St James Hospice each received a donation £800 after gym members raised £2,400 from a ‘Great Curves Bakeoff’, a coffee morning, raffle, a good-as-new clothes sale and a 12 hour ‘Curvathon’.

Curves’ owner, Kim Jones said the gym has a fundraising drive for good causes every year.

She added: “We are a small but friendly gym and my members are always willing to go that extra mile with fundraising.”
