Local fitness group in dragon boat race


Members of a local slimming and fitness club competed in a dragon boat race in September to raise funds for charity and to celebrate their instructor’s 25th anniversary year of teaching fitness.

“We recruited 17 of our members, aged 26 to almost 70, to take part in #Dragonfest 2019 – a day of fun, food and excitement in aid of good causes. Thirteen other teams, including nursery staff and cleaners, battled for first place on the day,” said South Woodford resident Karen Smith, who runs Fitgirlslim in Gants Hill, Chigwell, Woodford and Clayhall.

The Fitgirlslim Flyers – who were the only all-female team in the event – raised over £2,400 for Woodford Bridge charity ELHAP, which supports over 600 disabled children, young people and adults throughout the local area.
