Preston’s tenth annual Workoutathon has raised over £4,300 for Rainbow Hub, a Mawdesley-based charity which helps improve the lives of children with disabilities.

Last month the charity fundraiser saw over 90 people take part in The Great Room at Preston North End Football Club and was supported by Fletchers Group.

Participants took part in three hours of back-to-back energetic workout classes with qualified fitness intrusions giving their time for free.
