Spinathon Weekend

Our Events team Tracey and Rosie spent last weekend at the David Lloyd Leisure Club at Brighton Marina, raising money and awareness for Sport Relief and our own Charity Bike Ride 11-15 July.  Some members of staff at David Lloyd have already signed up to do this popular event which will leave Bangor in North Wales heading back to Brighton over 4 days. This event is a fantastic collaboration between individuals and businesses in Sussex, all raising money for local young people.

The David Lloyd team kept a static bike going throughout the day on Saturday 17th and covered an incredible 100k whilst collecting money. Sunday 18th saw over 50 volunteers come down and take part in a 5 hour Spinathon run by our Ambassador the amazing Tony Wright (better known in Brighton as Mr T). With upbeat music and heaps of enthusiasm, everyone had a great time keeping fit and raising money for two great charities. The spin covered over 700 kilometres which is even more than the distance being cycled on our route this July. 

Nathan Gillingham, General Manager of David Lloyd Brighton said “this is our second year of supporting the Starr Trust’s Pier to Pier bike ride. It was great to see staff, members and non-members cycling for such a great cause. Our team members enjoyed the ride so much last year that they are signed up and raring to go for this year.
