EASTBOURNE firefighters will be spinning at ASDA to raise money for the Tuesday O’Hara Fund.

East Sussex Fire and Rescue is teaming up with users of Fitness First, which is supplying exercise bikes, for a charity eight-hour spinathon. Stars of the town’s pantomime will also be there helping to collect money at the event on December 11.

It is hoped the event, with the support of the town’s firefighters, Fitness First and ASDA, will encourage festive shoppers to dig deep into their pockets and make a donation.

Organiser Gavin Wright said, “I was inspired to organise the event in conjunction with East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service because my dad is a firefighter at Crowborough and I regularly attend spinning classes at Fitness First and wanted to raise money for this good cause.”
