Stortford Health Club Gets Charities' Finances In Shape

“The coffers of two worthy causes are in better shape following a festive fund-raiser at a Bishop's Stortford health club. The Nuffield Health, Fitness and Wellbeing Centre at the Anchor Street leisure complex opened its doors to the public on Monday (December 7) for its fourth annual Christmas fair. Visitors to the free event browsed stalls selling home-made cakes, jewellery and hand-made cards, as well as mulled wine and mince pies. The proceeds from the event will be divided between the Observer’s £100,000 Macmillan Cancer Support appeal and St Clare Hospice in Hastingwood. Mel Brooks, the health centre’s charity organiser, said: ‘Many of our members, relatives and good friends have suffered from cancer over the years. This makes us passionate about raising funds for these really important causes.’”
