A teacher is set to host a spinning class at a gym in Stamford to support a Christmas appeal.
Joanne Wye, who is deputy headteacher at NeneGate School in Peterborough, is raising funds for the Rotary Club of Stamford St Martin’s Christmas tree appeal, and will be taking the session at Westside Health Club on Sunday, from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
With the money raised, she will be giving it to the children at her school, who have behavioural, emotional and social difficulties, to buy presents for the disadvantaged children which the appeal is supporting this Christmas.
All places for the class are booked but donation buckets will be available at the gym for people to give generously.
This year, the Rotary Club of Stamford St Martin’s is supporting Stamford Home-Start, Peterborough Family Action, the mother and baby unit at Peterborough Prison, Downs Syndrome and Boston Pilgrim Hospital.
