Pedal power brings in the charity cash
FITNESS fans got in a spin to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease.
A total of 264 people took part in an outdoor spinathon at Tewkesbury Park Hotel at the weekend.
Groups of 44 people took part in six back-to-back classes on the tennis courts with the help of instructors.
Each class lasted around 55 minutes.

Organiser Steve Probert said: "We have done it in previous years and the most we have managed before is about 25 people.
"But this year Fitness First donated some spinning bikes and we decided to raise money for the charity. People from Tewkesbury Park and other gyms took part. We also had a raffle on the day. It was a lot of fun."
People paid £20 to take part and the event has raised nearly £4,000.
It was hoped the attempt would be a Guinness World Record.
Mr Probert said: "Unfortunately they would not recognise it as an outdoor event, but it is a record for Tewkesbury Park Hotel."
Other sponsors for the event included Sainsbury's, Morrisons and McDonalds, which donated bags of fruit.
