BATHGATE, U K (West Lothian Courier) - A Livingston man is organising a fitness day to raise money for charity.

Ben Anderson (21) is setting up the running and walking event around Dechmont Circle in the town in a bid to raise cash for the British Heart Foundation.

The qualified fitness instructor is suggesting a 10 donation to take part in the event on Sunday, February 26, but people are free to offer whatever they can afford.

Ben is also offering incentives to those thinking of taking part in the charity day, including a week of free fitness classes and a health evaluation as part of his new company, Reem Fitness.

Ben has helped to raise money for the British Heart Foundation before and is looking forward to doing it again.

He said: I wanted to support a charity that relates to my line of work and obviously heart problems are linked to obesity and poor diet and fitness.

I have also run for the British Heart Foundation in the past when I did the Edinburgh marathon.

And Ben would love to see plenty of faces down there on Sunday to help raise as much for the foundation as possible.

He added: I will have the route all planned out on the day and we will leave from Deans Community High School.

I have approached a load of family and friends but it would be great to see more people down. Id hope to attract more than 50 people along.
