A couple who suffered three miscarriages and a stillbirth before the arrival of their son in February will be undertaking a seven-hour exercise marathon to raise funds for charity Tommy’s.
Amy and James Hawtin will be donning their trainers for a full workout day to raise hundreds of pounds for the charity, which supported them during their heartbreak.
New mum Amy, from Chapel-en-le-Frith, is also holding a ball at the Devonshire Dome next month, but wanted to do another fundraising event.
She said: “People who can’t come to the ball still wanted to donate, but I wanted to show them I was doing something for their money.
“I try to get to the gym most days but wanted to push myself and thought this would be a good way to raise more money for Tommy’s, who were so wonderful to me.”
The exercise marathon will be taking place at the Fitness Station, on Long Lane in Chapel-en-le-Frith, from 9am on Sunday October 22, when people will be able to take part in a variety of classes.
Amy added: “Thanks to Rick and Chris for making this happen.”
