FUND-RAISERS are being encouraged to get their skates on and complete as many laps as possible for a charity event at a leisure venue.
As part of the skateathon at CurveMotion, in Bury St Edmunds, on September 11, skaters are being invited to take on 422 laps – the equivalent of a 26 mile marathon – for the St Nicholas Hospice Accumulator Challenge.
Entrants are being asked to raise a minimum of £20 sponsorship if they are aged 16 and under and £50 if they are over 16 with all sponsorship plus a percentage of the entrance fees benefiting the hospice. Spokeswoman Sarah Stamp said: “Not only is it going to be great fun but it gives us a chance to raise money for an excellent local cause which is very close to our hearts.” Meanwhile, CurveMotion has donated £1,009 to the Suffolk Breakthrough for Breast Cancer charity, which was raised through an end of term party for mothers.
