2013 Charity Appeal
Each year Pilates4life and its members work to raise funds for selected charities. This year Pilates4life has produced a Podcast – a 12-minute pilates workout in audio form that can be downloaded to your phone, tablet or computer so that you can take your pilates class with you anywhere. All the proceeds from the sale of the podcasts went to this year’s charities: Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre at Mount Vernon Hospital, in memory of Anne Walder and Nystagmus Network in memory of Tom Ousby: two inspirational people who died too young in 2013. By the time Gift Aid was added Pilates4life raised over £1500!
