FITNESS fans face a gruelling challenge tomorrow, Friday, at JWC Health and Fitness in Holmes Chapel.

The eight-strong team of four men and four women are taking part in Mission Impossible to raise money for The Remembering Nell Foundation.

The foundation was set up in memory of teenager Nell Jones, who was killed in the bomb explosion at the Manchester Arena.

The team will be taking part in all eight training sessions at the gym over 14 hours, starting at 6am and finishing at 8pm.

Those taking part include Steve Morrison, Jason McEwan, Dave Brown, Gemma Parsons, Lucy Welsh, Beth Hancock and Eddy Knightsbridge.

Jason McEwan works for CBRE, which has donated £350 towards the £2,650 raised by the fundraiser, through a justgiving page and via offline donations.

Mission Impossible is one of a series of events being staged by JWC in 2019 for the foundation, its chosen charity for the year after raising almost £1,000 last year for Manchester Children’s Hospital.

“Tomorrow’s event will be a gruelling 14 hours of high intensity exercises, and I would like to thank everyone who has given donations,” said JWC director Jack Curr.

People are welcome to come along tomorrow to support the fundraisers, and there will be donation buckets.

A charity DJ night was held last month for the foundation, JWC is taking part in Born Survivor at Capesthorne Hall in May, and another charity DJ night will be held in June.

The justgiving page has raised £2,200, with a further £450 from offline donations, and anyone who would like to support the event can visit
