Fitness First show their support for our children’s services

28 Apr 2016

Staff at Fitness First – St Paul’s branch – have kindly chosen to support children’s services at Barts Health NHS Trust throughout 2016, ensuring they'll be giving something back to the local area by enhancing care for children in the community.

Kicking off their year of fundraising to help children in the hospitals we support, Personal Trainer and Membership Consultant Kayhan Kiani has organised a raffle with a fantastic range of prizes including free membership, personal training and nutritional prizes – worth £800 in total.

Of the five hospitals of Barts Health NHS Trust, there are children’s services at The Children’s Hospital at The Royal London, as well as Newham and Whipps Cross hospitals – altogether incorporating one of the biggest centres in the country for children.

Speaking about choosing Barts Charity, Kayhan said: “We originally wanted to raise money for a charity that supports children as I believe in helping those who can’t help themselves.

“Barts Charity helps to improve the children’s wards and services, and I strongly believe in creating a comfortable and friendly environment, hence why we have chosen this charity.”

The team at Fitness First have more fundraising ideas for the year ahead, and we look forward to working with them to make a difference to care for children in our local community.
