TWO leisure centres will be spending this month calling on their members to raise money for charity.

The Fareham and Holly Hill leisure centres, operated by Everyone Active in partnership with Fareham Borough Council, has launched the month-long campaign for a diabetes organisation.

Starting today, a variety of activity challenges for members, guests and colleagues will raise cash for JDRF who research type 1 diabetes.

Every week of the month will focus on a different activity, from physical challenges to fancy dress fitness.

Staff from Everyone Active will also be taking part in Ride to Cure, a static bike competition organised by JDRF at the Royal Exchange in London.

Contract manager Ryan Grant said: ‘JDRF is a charity very close to our hearts. We hope to raise funds for those affected by type 1 diabetes as well as increase awareness of the condition.

‘Our month of activity is the perfect opportunity for people to try new ways of getting active while raising money for a fantastic cause.

‘We are offering a variety of activities for people of all ages and abilities and we really hope to inspire the community.’
