9:00am Sunday 14th October 2012 in News
CURVES in Penarth is once again raising money for Breast Cancer Care. The Ladies Fitness Centre is offering new members a no-joining-fee special, in exchange for a donation to the charity throughout October.
The gym, based on Arcot Street, raised its highest amount ever for Breast Cancer Care last year - and staff are hoping to raise a substantial amount again this time.
Manager Louise Eveleigh said: "Past efforts had helped unknown numbers of women who have, are, or will suffer from this devastating disease.
"We want to doante as much as we can."
Gym owner Delyth Williams added: "Breast cancer and other diseases are a risk to all women, so to lower the risk by maintaining a healthy weight is essential.
"The Curves 30 minute workout and weight management programme, specifically designed for women. is fun, fast and safe."
Curves staff are also collecting old or unwanted bras from both members and local residents alike for the club's bra recycling bank, with £1 donated to Breast Cancer Care for each kilo of bras donated.
"All the bras are up on our wall and looking glorious!" said Louise.
Michelle Smith, Corporate Partnerships Officer at Breast Cancer Care said: "All of us at Breast Cancer Care are extremely grateful for the continued support we receive from Curves clubs across Wales every year."
