FITNESS fanatics took part in more than four hours of exercise for charity.

The charity aerobics marathon took place on Sunday in aid of Kirkwood Hospice.

Kirklees Active Leisure ran the sports day at the town’s sports centre to support the hospice.

Anthony Devlin, from Kirklees Active Leisure, said: “There was more than four hours’ worth of exercise classes people could take part in, and some were doing one class while others stayed for the whole time.

“Kirkwood Hospice is one of the local charities we support and we feel that it is a vital facility which does so much for the people of the area and their families at difficult times of need for them.

“We just wanted to do whatever we could to support them.”

Fitness fanatics took part in aerobics, step, boxercise, flex and stretch and pilates classes throughout Sunday.

Organisers are still waiting to see how much they have raised for the worthy cause.
