Skateathon

People in Bury St Edmunds have raised more than £2,000 by getting their skates on for charity.

Last Thursday, a group of 10 customers and staff at CurveMotion, in Bury, competed in a sponsored skateathon to raise money as part of the St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Accumulator Challenge.

All 10 skaters completed 422 laps of the rink – the equivalent of a 26 mile marathon – in two hours or less and expect to have raised more than £2,000.
