Emma Taylor, aged 42, will be competing in the London Marathon next summer and has already raised £700.35 for her chosen charity, Whizz Kidz.

The charity provides wheelchairs to children which can make a huge difference to their quality of life.

The spin session, which was held at @Worle, saw Mark Wilson lead 55 people through a three-hour back-to-back session.

Fifty-five people climbed onto bikes and built up a sweat for the worthy cause.

Emma said: “I cannot thank @Worle and Candace Riley enough for all their help in putting this event on.”

Emma is also inviting people to revel in their Christmas decorations at 430 Locking Road, opposite Baytree Rec, and make a small donation to the children’s charity.
