Hilton Birmingham Metropole Aqua Aerobics Class Raising Money For Troops
Group Of Aqua Aerobics Enthusiasts Plan To Conduct Class in full fancy dress As Part Of An Initiative To Raise Money For Injured Soldiers Returning From Afghanistan And Iraq
November 17, 2009
BIRMINGHAM, UK - A group of aqua aerobics enthusiasts plan to conduct a class in full fancy dress as part of an initiative to raise money for injured soldiers returning from Afghanistan and Iraq. Each member of the class will be asking friends and family to sponsor them for this worthwhile cause before gathering in their finest outfits at the LivingWell Health Club in Hilton Birmingham Metropole on December 16 2009.
The money raised will be donated to Troop Aid, a charity that provides injured soldiers with a ‘Grab Bag’ on their return from service, which includes basic essentials such as clothing and toiletries, with the aim to make their first few days at Selly Oak Hospital’s Alexandra Wing in Birmingham more comfortable.
The aqua aerobics instructor Becky Jakes said, “The group is really looking forward to a fun class and I’ll be there in my pink tutu to spur them on”. Patrick Stapleton, General Manager of Hilton Birmingham Metropole added, “We are happy to host this event in our swimming pool situated within our newly refurbished LivingWell Health Club. The members of our aqua aerobics class are passionate and to take time to raise money for such a worthy cause is admirable of them. We actively encourage any members of the public who would like to join the class or simply sponsor, to get in touch with us.”
