TWO of the Hospice’s most prolific fundraisers will be working up a sweat this weekend to raise even more money in memory of their much-loved mam.

CrossFit Chester-le-Street has organised a special fundraising workout as a tribute to Wendy Charlton who died at St Cuthbert’s Hospice in June 2014.

The workout is one of a number of charity ‘hero’ workouts taking part during the gym’s official opening party on Saturday, June 4.Helen and Daniel Crossfit

Wendy’s children, Helen Corner and Daniel Lowden, who have already raised more than £18,000 for the Hospice through various fundraising activities, will be among those taking part in the routine.

Helen said: “I am really honoured CrossFit Chester-le-Street are doing this for us. We didn’t ask them to do it; they asked us. It just goes to show what a special person my mam was and how well-known and well-liked she was in the town. I really hope lots of people will come along and join in the fun.”

The party starts at 10am and will also include a family barbecue, as well as a chance to check out the gym’s facilities and find out more about CrossFit.

For those who have not heard of CrossFit, it is an all-inclusive strength and conditioning programme that has taken the UK exercise scene by storm in recent years.

It features a series of fundamental movements which are varied and executed at different intensity levels, making it accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels.

CrossFit Chester-le-Street is located in Park View in the town.
