The event was supported by JMW Solicitors LLP and Furness Building Society and took place at The Great Room, Preston North End Football Club, Sir Tom Finney Way, Preston on Sunday 20th February.
This year saw the return of the in-person event after it went virtual last year due to the pandemic.
Classes were attended by qualified fitness instructors – Rachel Burrows, Joanne Berends-Sheriff, Gill Walmsley, Roz Edwards, Steve Jenkinson and Rachel Holland – who all volunteered their time.
A raffle with fabulous prizes raised more funds thanks to Yoga Leggs, Clitheroe Cryo, Neom Organics, Victoria Cakes, The Market Ale House, BonBons Coffee Bar and Lavender & Thyme Artisan Catering.
