Members of a Great Blakenham gym are celebrating the completion of a gruelling 24 hour run on Saturday in aid of a Sproughton based children's charity.
The team from Attain & Sustain were inspired to fundraise for the Bumblebee, as one of their member's Chris Kingsbury, has seen his family supported by the charity, who help young children that have difficulties with movement and co-ordination.
Owner Jim Dale, said: "Chris like all of us was just so proud to have done it. There have been a lot of injuries in the group and a lot of difficulties, with the way things are there have been times where we have had restrictions and haven't been able to get together to train as a group."
"There were lots of personal triumphs for all of the team, it is just so lovely having had the 12-18 months we have had, it was just lovely to be together and do something positive."
Since members at Attain & Sustain have started fundraising for the Bumblebee Children's charity they have raised £2,500 with Mr Dale saying it feels "extra special" to support a smaller local charity where you can see where the money is having an impact.
The gym will continue to fundraise for Bumblebee over the coming months and you can find out what events they have planned on their Facebook page.
