This year’s annual fundraiser at Longford Fitness takes place on Saturday, March 30 from 8am to 2pm.

10am -12 noon: Head to Toe Healing’s Roisin Byrne will be offering reflexology, Reiki and Angel healing tasters. Finally, from 12 noon - 2pm, there will be an in-house strength & conditioning competition for clients, consisting of teams of two.

Tess Gillen, Longford Fitness, explained: “We always strive to give back to the community that has supported us since opening in 2012 and this year we have seen clients, friends and family members battle cancer.”

She added: “We felt after hearing stories of how amazing the local Hospice has been to some of these families that this year, we would make sure to host an event for them. Everyone is welcome on the day, even just to pop in for a cuppa and a chat at Longford Fitness, N4 Axis Centre, Longford.”

Tess thanked the ‘amazing’ staff of Longford Fitness and the health and well-being providers that will be giving up their free time to make this event possible.
