Stormy Spinathon

Aspire Europe went spinning crazy on Saturday to fund raise for the British Heart Foundation.


The spinathon saw more than 50 people brave thunderstorms by taking part and cycling for 20 minutes.  Tom Ford from the Aspire Europe team spent the full 3 hours spinning in preparation for a 100 mile charity cycle in August.  We also held a spin class and passers-by joined in the action for a small donation.

Tom Ford, organising for Aspire Europe, said “As part of my fundraising for the Prudential Ride London – Surrey 100 taking place on Sunday 10th August, I had to think about a way to fund raise and train at the same time!  A spinathon seemed like the perfect solution to get lots of people involved and raise money at the same time.”

Home-made cakes were also on sale to help the participants refuel!  We raised a total of £400 in 3 hours so many thanks to all that came along, took part or supported in some way.
