PEOPLE took part in a four hour circuit training marathon to raise money for a forces charity.

Scores turned up to Witham Hall School in Witham-on-the-Hill yesterday (Sunday) to take part in the challenge and support Help for Heroes.

The event was organised by Richard Goodsell, 53, of Lindsey Close, Bourne. Richard runs weekly circuit training classes in Witham-on-the-Hill, Bourne and Thurlby and has also been chosen to carry the Olympic torch through his hometown on July 4.

He said: “It went brilliantly. Everyone that started it completed it. They all did very well and I think we raised between £3,000 and £4,000.

“When I was selected to carry the torch I decided I wanted to do something to raise money. I picked Help for Heroes as I am an ex-serviceman.

“We had all ages come along, even a 75-year-old.”

Richard thanked the RAF personnel and staff from Harvey’s Universal Fitness Centre in Bourne, who came to help with the timing, and Tesco which supplied drinks for the competitors.
