Build your balance at new fitness class in Narborough

Bosu ball fitness classes are starting at Narborough Parish Centre from Tuesday May 10 as part of Active Together Blaby’s spring fitness programme.

 

The weekly sessions are designed to help people’s balance, build endurance and improve their upper and lower body strength.

Alex Brown, physical activity development officer at Blaby District Council said:

“There are hundreds of different exercises to try with and without the balancing ball so it’s a great way to get in shape for the summer.”

Classes are from 12.15 – 1pm and cost £2.50

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.
