New Year’s resolutions have received a welcome boost with the launch of a fit camp in Fleet.

Luke Heward, who runs the Famous Fitness personal training company, is provided a place to burn off excess Christmas calories on Ancells Farm estate.

He is donating money raised from the first two sessions, held on January 4 and 11, to community action group Friends of Ancells, which will put the funds towards developing a children’s play area.

“I have met with the Friends of Ancells and they are happy to accept the donation, and we will be working together to raise as much money as possible,” said Luke.

“For the first two sessions there will be no entry fee.

“People just decide what they want to pay and that money goes towards the donation to Friends of Ancells Farm,” added Luke, who is hoping to raise more than £200.

“I am also selling £50 gift cards of personal training, which can be bought at any price. Again, this money will go towards the Friends group.”

Founded in 2010, Friends of Ancells is raising funds to buy a set of two flat-seated swings and a basketball hoop to complete the play area for the under-12s, and provide some interest for the older children.

The fit camp sessions are held at Ancells Farm Community Centre, in Falkners Close, Fleet from 8.30am to 9.30am.
