Staff at the Castle Sports Complex in Spalding held a Halloween Day which raised £409.10 for Macmillan Cancer Support and to purchase a defibrillator.

Staff dressed up, danced in the town centre to Thriller, held themed classes and a legs, bums, tums session with a disco from Leo Promotions playing spooky songs, plus a raffle with prizes donated by customers, and a quiz.

Not content with that, staff held an indoor cycle at Morrisons in Pinchbeck for four hours.

All together, they cycled 837.3km on six bikes and raised £147.32.

The money is going to WheelPower, the 1Life charity, and the event also raised awareness of the wheelchair basketball event to be held at the sports centre tonight.

WheelPower is dedicated to providing opportunities for disabled people to live healthy, active lifestyles.

Its goal since the London Paralympic Games has been to continue the momentum and maximise the many benefits of sport for disabled people.

For the past year, WheelPower’s Physical Activity Advisors have been providing expert advice and support to patients with a recent spinal injury in the crucial early stages of rehabilitation.
