Braeside & Seaton Keep Fitter’s back Hospice at Home

Written by on July 6, 2020

From our reporter JASON RUSHWORTH

A group of neighbours from in Seaton Workington, have made the best of their lock down period today by organising a socially distant exercise class!

The Braeside and Seaton Keep Fitter’s have now backed Hospice at Home West Cumbria, by purchasing branded t-shirts to wear during their new daily work-out in the street.

Organiser Barbara MacLeod told St Bees Community radio news that the new daily work-outs will be great for everyone’s mental health, as some of the neighbours around here live alone and others are working from home which can feel quite isolating.

Barbara MacLeod works for the hospice, and tells us – “I can’t help but think of ways to incorporate supporting the charity when there is something I am getting involved with, and so I suggested to the group that we all buy t-shirts from the hospice, and we decided on the superhero themed ones from last years  KAPOW! event which is unfortunately not able to go ahead this year but was a great fund raiser for the Hospice last year.

14 neighbours took part in today’s event between the rain showers.
