The event will be raising money to support The Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, which supports disadvantaged youngsters in Sheffield to access sports.

Just last year the gym raised more than £10,000 with their Love for Lebanon event and Danny hopes for more of the same.

“Our aim is to beat the total raised at our Love for Lebanon event. The Dame Kelly Holmes Trust is the perfect cause as it is a way for the gym and community to help young people to get the physical, mental and social benefits from being involved in sports."

The Games are open to all and will take place in the gym on Saturday, October 16, alongside a family fun day with some special guest appearances from athletes who are supporting the charity.
