Students and staff from Havant & South Downs College will be pushing themselves to the limit on Thursday when they take part in a four hour circuit class in aid of The Army Benevolent Fund, The Soldiers’ Charity (ABF).
The fund raiser ‘Enduro 15,000’, organised by students from the Uniformed Services and Level 2 Public Services course, will involve a circuit of eight tough gymnasium activities – including rope climbs, inclined abdominal, bench press ups and ammo crate lifts.
Lecturers will be donating boxes of chocolates to give to the person who raises the most money, as well as one for the lucky winner who can guess the number of repetitions made across all stands over the four hours. The team hope to reach 15,000 repetitions over the course of the challenge.
About the Army Benevolent Fund
The thirty-four students decided to raise funds in respect of an extremely deserving charity, ABF. This charity gives a lifetime of support to soldiers and veterans from the British Army and their immediate families in their time of need.
ABF has been helping peoples’ lives since 1944 and the charity’s work can include anything from emergency flights across the globe following the death of a close family member in complex circumstances to providing essential clothing and school uniforms for young children whose single parent is unable to make ends meet.
Other donations can be in the form of grants to help with basic needs of boiler repairs for those who have fallen on hard times to helping the homeless veterans and providing wheelchairs for injured services and ex-service persons.
Where is Enduro 15,000 taking place?
The event will be taking place in the Sports Hall of the South Downs Campus from 11am until 3pm on 28 September and guesses to the number of repetitions made will be 50p a guess.
The ABF have donated T shirts, pens and wrist bands that can be purchased for £1.
