Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa has held its first ever class-a-thon to raise money for Niamh Henry’s Fairy Wish Fund, the charitable organisation the hotel is supporting for the coming year.

Members of the Hotel’s fitness club, The Edge, could bring a guest on the day to take part in one, or more classes and everyone who took part offered their class fee as a donation. The Hotel hopes the event will raise around £300.

Sonia Jameson, Manager of The Edge Health & Fitness Club, took part in all 11 classes on the day including two spin classes, two pilates classes, Zumba and boxercise.

When asked about the day, Sonia commented: “It was fantastic to see our members and their guests come together, attempting classes they wouldn’t normally go to; we had more men in Zumba than ever before!”

Niamh Henry’s Fairy Wish Fund raises money for C2, the children’s cancer unit at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, the children’s Rainbow Ward at the West Suffolk Hospital, the paediatric counselling services at Addenbrooke’s, and Stars, which is a community based counselling service in Cambridge for bereaved children.

Sonia continued: “It is really important for businesses to get behind local organisations like Niamh Henry’s Fairy Wish Fund. The amazing work they undertake, to make the lives easier for poorly children and their families, is inspirational, and we are all looking forward to the next fundraising event!”

Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa is the only 4 star hotel in Newmarket combining 77 Suites and Superior Rooms, a luxury spa on site, indoor swimming pool, gym facilities and an award-winning restaurant.
