A team of 25 members from the class hosted a quiz night, a white collar boxing event and a cycle from London to Paris.    

They even achieved a world record for having the most people doing squats to the tune of Bring Sally Up, Bring Sally Down.     Liz and Paul

"We train together and we raise money as a group," said Paul Lomas, the fitness instructor who set up and runs the class.     

"If we can make a difference and change one life then we are happy."    

Paul, who uses his 65 Heavy training programme to rehabilitate West Ham players recovering from various injuries, says his classes and activities are suitable for people of any level.      

And Paul and the class Liz and Paulplan to carry out even more action-packed events and top its fundraising total during 2019.     

They'll be inviting supporters to join them so watch this space!    

Adam Gordon, our Corporate Partnership Executive, said, "'Over the past year it has been great getting to know the 65 heavy team who have done incredibly well to raise so much money for the Hospice and I look forward to working with them again this year."
