CheeziFit is very proud and privileged to support 2 local charities; St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth and Plymouth Foodbank. We are very proud that our participants rally round and make such an effort to support these charity events.
Many of our friends and families in Plymouth have been supported, cared for by and personally affected by the kindness found at St Luke's Hospice Plymouth and their dedicated staff.
Every year St Luke's Hospice Plymouth organises an annual Midnight Walk to raise money and awareness for this reputable and much needed institution.
Team CheeziFit have been privileged to support this event by leading the warm-up to several thousand participants, handing out medals at the end of the event and generally helping out where needed.
It's a magical and emotional event and we are thrilled that so many of our fantastic CheeziFitters have supported it either by taking part in the sponsored walk and raising vital funds or by volunteering their services as marshalls.
For the past 10 years from November to mid December we have supported and donated to Plymouth Foodbank.
A plea is sent out to all our classes asking for donations from those in a position to help those who are less fortunate. Every single tin or packet of food donated helps.
Team CheeziFit ensures all donations are delivered to the Foodbank where they are weighed and recorded by their selfless team of volunteers before being distributed to those in need; collectively helping those who need it most in the winter months and leading up to Christmas.
In 2019 over 410kg of food and toiletries, equating to over 64 stone, was donated by our wonderful community of CheeziFitters.
In 2020 and 2021 we have continued to support the charity by collecting food at the beginning of the pandemic and raising funds during the year.
