A fitness instructor will lead a two-hour session to raise money for a charity close to his heart.

Garry Gardiner, from Kingston Seymour, will hold the session in the village hall, in Ham Lane, to raise money for his friend Curtis Tomlinson’s stem cell treatment.

Mr Gardiner said: “The stem cell treatment will not get 
rid of the cancer but it will 
help to prolong his life.

“We are trying to raise £15,000, which will cover two weeks of treatment.”
