Using a spin bike donated for the day by The Gym Group and a Nordic walker machine, the Highfield members set themselves the challenge of covering the milage from the group’s base at St Paul’s Church in Highfield to Slimming World head office in Derby – 116 miles.

The group were cheered on by fellow members, some of whom also took part, seeing members smash their target and cover 133 miles.

As well as raising money for Sport Relief, the aim was to raise awareness of how keeping a healthy weight and being active can help improve health.

Group leader Haylea Gavin said: “It was a fantastic event and the atmosphere was buzzing. I’m so pleased with how much we raised for Sport Relief and I think the event showed people just how motivating being part of a group like ours can be.”
