A Spalding gym challenged a Weight Watchers’ group to muscle in and help raise cash for charity. 

Tulip Radio’s Jan Whitbourn went along to Everybody’s Gym with her friends from the local club to row 22 miles – the distance across the English Channel. 
Challenging them was fitness consultant Jonny Packard. He said: “I knew they would beat me, but it was more about promoting fitness and the gym. A few of them joined the gym afterwards.” 
The gym raised £250 for St Barnabas Hospice last month. Jonny is pictured (front left) with Jan (front centre) and friends.
