Former Royal Marine sets himself hefty charity challenge in Redditch
12:00pm Tuesday 20th August 2013 in News
THIS Saturday, August 24, Philip Blundall of Core Strength X-Training is planning to lift 12,000kg at St Stephen’s Church in Redditch between 11am and 3pm in aid of charity.
The weight represents that of a F16 fighter jet, with all its pay load of munitions and fuel.
Mr Blundall said: “I have chosen the Community First Responders as the charity I want to raise money for because I have several links with them.
“It’s a community-based organisation that relies on donations and provide a valuable service. Arriving at the scene of an incident in remarkably quick time makes all the difference in saving people’s lives.
“I feel this a more than worthy charity and needs highlighting more to Redditch people.”
A former Royal Marine, Mr Blundall recently opened a Crosssfit gym in Lakeside, which aims to get everybody fit and healthy with functional movements, that replicate things they do in everyday life.
To help keep him motivated on Saturday, Andy Brown and Phil Costley of Twisted Funk will be playing a set on their decks and giving away free CDs.
There will also be various pieces of equipment for people to come and try out for themselves, while they make a donation to Community First Responders.
