Fundraising event for LOROS raises £2000

The late Terry Wootton with wife Karen

On Saturday 16th April the cycling arena at Everyone Active at Enderby Leisure Centre was renamed the Terry Wootton Cycle Arena in memory of a local man.

Karen Wootton, Terry’s wife and also the fitness manager at Everyone Active at Enderby Leisure Centre, was on hand to unveil the plaque.

This coincided with a fundraising event where members paid to participate in special classes in the morning, a cake sale was held in the reception area and a local company called Pink Confetti were selling handbags, shoes and accessories with 15% of the proceeds going to the nominated charity, LOROS Hospice.

In the afternoon Terry’s bikes were auctioned off, raising a phenomenal £800.

With the contributions from members and staff (who donated their pay for the day), proceeds from Pink Confetti and the cake sale a massive £2000 was raised on the day for LOROS, the Leicestershire and Rutland Hospice in Leicester.
