A three-hour spinathon – an exercise class on stationary bikes – is taking place at Fit4Less, at Connaught Drill Hall, Stanhope Road, Portsmouth, on Tuesday, April 19.

The gym opened in January and it has been fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support.

So far it has raised £500, but assistant manager Jodi Clark said they hope this event will push their total higher.
