GrizzFit is holding an event on June 26 which will see the team at Mill Road Industrial Estate take on the physical challenge of completing 24 WODS (workout of the day) in 24 hours to raise funds for charities The Anthony Nolan Trust and Rock2recovery.

Fundraisers Barry McGeachie, Tom Griscti and Jen Matthews said: “The aim of the event is to raise awareness for our chosen charities as well as much needed funding to support the work they do.

"Money raised for charities has been greatly affected as a result of Covid and as restrictions ease we want to use this opportunity to help as much as possible.

"The charities we have chosen are both close to our hearts for various reasons after experiencing the help they provide for family members and friends first hand. Both of these charities have great meaning for the team and go a long way to helping many lives in different ways. “

GrizzFit launched in August 2020 and was set up by Tom Griscti, a former Royal Marine and his partner Jenny Matthews, an ex-gymnast.

Barry McGeachie joined the gym from day one and soon developed a passion for the style of training and community within the gym. He approached Tom and Jen to put forward the idea of raising money for charity.
