St Luke’s ‘Spinners’ raise money for patient care

St Luke’s very first ‘Spinathon’ was a huge success as supporters managed to raise more than £6,700 for patient care at the Hospice.

Thirty three St Luke’s supporters took over the spin studio at Brio’s Winsford Lifestyle centre on Sunday 20th February, taking part in three separate sessions of 90 minutes each.

Some supporters challenged themselves to do all three sessions cycling for a total of four and a half hours. Many completed the ‘Spinathon’ in memory of a loved one, making the event all the more meaningful for those involved.

The ‘Spinathon’ was led by experienced instructor Lorna Tulloch, who kept the fundraisers motivated throughout the day.

She said, “I’m absolutely overwhelmed by how much money has been raised for the Hospice from the Spinathon. It was such a brilliant day raising money for our local Hospice, everybody did so well on the day and they were a pleasure to teach. Here’s to Spinathon 2023!”

Angela Slack, St Luke’s Community Partnerships Manager, said “St Luke’s Hospice would like to thank everyone who was involved in the Spinathon, including those who took part, donors, Brio Winsford for hosting the event and Lorna Tulloch for organising. We are overwhelmed by the amount of money raised by our brilliant supporters who always go the extra mile for our Hospice.”
