Super-fit fancy-dress fundraisers are taking part in a four-hour spinathon on exercise bikes to raise money for Chesterfield’s Ashgate Hospice.

The fundraiser has been organised by Simply Gym, on Sheffield Road, at Whittington Moor, Chesterfield, and will take place between 1pm and 5pm, on Saturday, May 10.

Staff and members will be raising sponsor money and taking donations on the day to help the hospice, on Ashgate Road, at Old Brampton.

A Simply Gym spokesman said: “There will be 37 riders taking part and one of them is aged 77 years-old.”

The gym, which used to be Fitness First, has held previous spinathons and raised hundreds of pounds for different worthy causes.

Those taking part in the gym’s latest fundraiser will be dressing up as pirates and gladiators.
