STAFF at two Doncaster gyms have signed up to raise cash for a South Yorkshire charity while their members get fit.

Both Nuffield Health’s Sidings Court gym, and Fitness First’s Sandford Court site took part in an event called The Big Spin - to help South Yorkshire homeless children’s charity Safe@Last.

The Dinnington-based charity helps children at risk through running away, and those taking part in the fundraiser were sponsored to ride as far as they could on an exercise bike.

Safe@Last has been established for 10 years and provides a 24-hour helpline, one-to-one support, preventative workshops, and an emergency young person’s refuge.

Claire Saddington, fundraising event co-ordinator for Safe@Last, said: “The Big Spin is a brilliant opportunity for people who are may be struggling with their new year’s resolutions to get the boost they need - while supporting an excellent cause at the same time.”
