Local gym brightens Christmas for vulnerable families


Monday, 20 January, 2020

Some of Surrey Heath’s most vulnerable families had their Christmas brightened by a hamper donation from a local gym. 


Maximus Gym in Frimley donated five hampers for distribution through Surrey Heath Borough Council’s Family Support department. 


The hampers included food, drinks, Christmas decorations, personalised stockings for each childtoys and toiletries. 


The SHBC team ensured they were given to deserving families in the borough who would have otherwise had very little for Christmas this year. 


Surrey Heath Portfolio Holder for Support and Safeguarding, Councillor Josephine Hawkins, said: ‘We are very grateful for the wonderful Christmas hampers that Maximus Gym and its members have donated this year.  


These have all been gifted to the most vulnerable families in Surrey Heath, who would have otherwise gone without this Christmas. 


A spokesperson for Maximus Gym said: “Maximus Gym are passionate about supporting the local community and bringing everyone together.  


“This year, members of the gym have gone above and beyond to support the most vulnerable families in the area by donating towards Christmas hampers, to ensure that everyone can enjoy Christmas.
