Sunday’s family event was organised by Lucy Cronin, of 365Motivate, and was hosted at Hardwick Primary School.

It featured a range of events and challenges from martial arts demonstrations to the hour-long fitness boot camp.

Ms Cronin said: “It went absolutely fantastically, we had a brilliant day which really helped.

“So many different people helped out and gave their time and donated prizes, so I couldn’t have done it without them.
