Super-fit fundraisers do pull ups for pounds in aid of Hampshire neonatal unit
The families of babies being treated on the neonatal unit at Royal Hampshire County Hospital will enjoy improved facilities thanks to the efforts of a group of super-fit fundraisers.
Members of Dawn Breakers Winchester, an early morning fitness class based at The Westgate School, raised £10,000 by completing an exhausting 12 hours of high intensity interval training.
Sessions normally last just 45 minutes, but the group did exercises including push ups, pull ups, jumps and tyre flips for nine times the normal class time to help the unit.
The money will be used to make improvements to the facilities for families, including refurbishing the available accommodation.
