To celebrate Mother's Day, an award-winning gym in Burnley is throwing its support behind Breast Cancer Care’s ‘Mum of a Kind’ campaign by opening its doors to non-members to train for free.
Across Mother's Day weekend - Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of March - Xercise4Less Burnley will welcome everyone to their premises on Kingsway for free with a recommended donation of £2 to Breast Cancer Care in the hope that any generous donations will raise much-needed funds for the charity.
Xercise4Less are in full support of the ‘Mum of a Kind’ campaign this Mother’s Day to celebrate their members’ "gym mums" and raise awareness around breast cancer: the most common cancer in the UK.
This Mother’s Day, the equivalent of 170 women will be diagnosed with the disease, while Breast Cancer Care is the only specialist UK-wide charity providing vital care, support, and information for anyone affected by breast cancer from day one.
Three day entry passes can be downloaded online from: https://www.xercise4less.co.uk/free-3-day-pass before March 22nd, 2017.
In the two weeks leading up to Mother’s Day, members are all invited to nominate "#MyGymMum" - whether this is their own mother, a relative, or a female friend - by telling Xercise4Less why this woman is their inspiration in the gym.
Nominations can be made online and the winning entrant along with their ‘gym mum’ will receive a spa day for two.
Tim Weir, General Manager at Xercise4Less Burnley, said: “It is a pleasure to be working with Breast Cancer Care again this year. Many of our team members and clients have been affected by breast cancer in some way and we look forward to seeing the club rally together to raise funds for this brilliant cause, whilst supporting the ‘gym mums’ in their lives.”
Leah Weal, Brands Partnerships Specialist at Breast Cancer Care, says: “We are delighted Xercise4Less has decided to partner with Breast Cancer Care this Mother’s Day.
“With one person every ten minutes diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK, the funds raised by Xercise4Less will help us continue to provide anyone affected by breast cancer the best care, support, and information."
