RYGOR Commercials’ recent online charity fitness class raised £1,745 through donations for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

This amount has been matched by the Rygor business, meaning that the charity receives a grand total of £3,490 to help support its vital work with children and young people living with cancer. 

“The class was a great success and started bright an early on Friday 16th July, with Rygor team members, their friends and family, along with colleagues from the Mercedes-Benz Vans Dealer Network, working hard to raise money in support of a great cause,” said a spokesperson for Rygor. 

Rygor owner-director, Paul Reed (who is also a qualified fitness coach and nutritionist), led 23 participants through a 40-minute session, filled with laughter and a great display of team spirit. In addition to raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust, the class itself formed part of Rygor’s Wellness Programme, an initiative which has gained momentum throughout the recent pandemic and is integral to Rygor’s commitment to its team’s mental and physical health. 

Paul Reed said, “We care passionately about community support, and it was important to everyone at Rygor to get behind this event, raising money for such a worthy cause. Thank you to everyone who took part, sent messages of goodwill, and donated. You really did make a huge difference to the total raised. Team Rygor will continue to use online events to fundraise for causes close to our hearts, so make sure you look out for the next one!” 

Tracy Burns, relationship manager for Teenage Cancer Trust in the South West said, “We can’t thank the Rygor team enough, for raising an amazing amount with their online fitness fundraiser. Not only has it been great for everyone’s wellbeing, but the money raised will help fund our incredible nurses and services that support teenagers and young people with cancer, throughout the toughest times imaginable. Nothing we do as a charity would be possible without the fundraising efforts of companies like Rygor Commercials. Thank you, Team Rygor. You are absolute legends!”
