Pied Piper Appeal getting active for Fit February

Charity fundraising has been hit hard during the pandemic but the Pied Piper Appeal is not sitting back - and it is encouraging supporters to get active to support it through this month.

The appeal, which supports sick and disabled children and their families in Gloucestershire, has launched Fitness February.

It involves adopting a personal challenge to do a daily physical activity for health and wellbeing with the entry fee going towards supporting children at county hospitals, SEND schools and paediatric mental health.

Trustee Cat Hage said: "We already have 50 in the Fit Feb team and are sure more will join in as social media showcases everyone's efforts.

"You can choose from easy, moderate or hard and do the set tasks each day for a better you and a great sense of wellbeing and kindness knowing the entry fees are directly benefitting children in our county."

The campaign follows Charlie Bruce of Crossfit Glevum raising £12,000 running around the county with a loaded backpack in the last few months, but you do not have to be quite so physically active to support the charity's February programme.

Vice-chair Julie Kent will be hosting a Sax and Song musical quiz on February 9 (7pm) while the charity is running a pancake masterclass on February 16 and a Valentine Raffle.

It is also running a click and collect service from its charity shop in Brockworth via the charity's Facebook page.

Details of how to join in with the charity's February fundraisers can be seen found at piedpiperappeal.co.uk.
