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.

Amy and James Hawtin welcomed their miracle baby, Jasper after suffering three miscarriages and a stillbirth.

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.”
