Members’ Adventures in Asia raise £6000!

Two Rivers members have raised over £6000 for women’s charities thanks in part to donations received through Pershore Leisure Centre.

Lorraine Hunt and Anne Brown cycled from Vietnam to Cambodia earlier this year, having already raised money through auctions and charity balls as well as a ‘Spinathon’ at the centre in 2016.

The challenge, which saw both women travel 450km across the two countries, took place from 6-17th February and was part of a larger initiative which has raised approximately £360,000 for Women V Cancer to date.

Rivers Fitness donated use of the studio for the ‘Spinathon’ event and prior to her departure for Vietnam, Lorraine said “I would like to thank all of the staff for their support and encouragement and am completely overwhelmed by people’s generosity”.
