Yogathon – January 21st 2012

Yogathon Participants - Abbie's Fund Memory BoxesWe’d like to say a massive thank you to Lesley and Ann-Marie for organising this event and for all of the people who took part. Their hard work getting sponsorship and then taking part in the Yogathon raised a huge £3700 for Abbie’s Fund – amazing!

The event at the Victoria Dock village hall, Hull, was a great afternoon with a fantastic atmosphere and as well as thanks to the participants we’d also like to thank the volunteers that helped in the kitchen, raffle and tombola, and for all those who baked some delicious cakes and buns!  The memory boxes provided by Abbie’s Fund could not be provided without this kind of help and support so its massively important.

The Yogathon involved 108 sun salutations (that’s 12 moves for the right side and 12 for the left side for one salutation, so roughly around 2600 bends and stretches!) which is a great achievement for all of the participants.

Paul taking part - Abbie's Fund Memory BoxesPaul took part and did the whole 108 sun salutations. He agreed to do it in a pink tutu as encouragement for sponsorship if he could raise more than £200, which he did!
