A PERSONAL trainer has turned pounds lost in weight to pounds raised in money for a children’s hospice.

Fareham-based Nikki Caputa put on a Fab Body Bootcamp in aid of Naomi House, the region’s children’s hospice, with every pound in weight lost by everyone who signed up making £1 for the charity.

A cheque for £100 was handed over to the hospice as a result of the weight lost on the four-week programme.

Nikki said: ‘We’ve have such a great response to what we do from people here in Fareham and when we decided to do something for charity, the interest increased as locals wanted to help children from the area. That’s one of the reasons we settled on Naomi House.’

Nicole Denison, community fundraising team member, said: ‘Everyone here at the Naomi House was delighted to hear about Nikki’s plan, and best of all, everyone benefits.’
