Curves Wrexham in ‘Pound for Pound’ Fundraising Effort for Breast Cancer Care

“In the run-up to October’s Breast Cancer Awareness month, Curves of Wrexham has set its members weighty charity challenge. For every pound in weight they lose the health club will match them by donating the equivalent in money to Breast Cancer Care. The fundraising effort started on August 24 and members have already lost 55 pounds in their first week. With another five weeks to go until the challenge ends officially on October 5, it seems Breast Cancer Awareness is well on its way to a large donation. Sarah Jones, owner of the Wrexham club, said: ‘Last year Curves clubs in the UK raised more than £90,000 for Breast Cancer Care, this Pound for Pound Challenge is just the start of our own club fundraising efforts that will begin in earnest in October.’”
