Marathon Spinathon on Saturday 7 March at Virgin Active Brighton - Village Way, Falmer, Brighton, BN1 9SG
Get yourself in a spin this spring and head along to Virgin Active Brighton for their marathon Spinathon, raising money for the Starr Trust and Starlight Children’s Foundation.
The event will run from 9am-5pm followed by a pasta supper in the club restaurant with entertainment. There will also be a raffle and fun prizes throughout the day. Non-members will be welcome to use all the facilities on the day.
Proceeds from the day will go to the Starr Trust and Starlight charities. Starlight grants wishes to seriously and terminally ill children and mother Nadia, whose daughter was diagnosed with cancer last July, wanted to find a way of thanking Starlight for their amazing generosity at such a difficult time. She decided to team up with local charity, the Starr Trust, as they support disadvantaged young people who really need a helping hand, by providing grants and mentoring that make the world of difference.
