After running my hugely successful morning stretch sessions for 3 weeks in late-Spring, I have been itching to start the next series. Since then, an idea has been bubbling under to support local charities at the forefront of responding to the coronavirus pandemic. Having the YogaTwins at home for the past 19 weeks during lockdown has made it more tricky to find the time between work and childcare to prepare, but the wait is now over.
Stretch out the summer
I am delighted to announce that my summer stretch campaign will coincide with the start of the school holidays. Kicking off at 8.30am on Monday, 27th July, I will be beaming live and direct from YogaDad HQ for a 15-minute summer stretch to kick start your day. The classes will run every weekday for six weeks, concluding on Friday, 4th September.
For those that are unable to join me on Facebook live, I will be saving the classes to the videos section on my Facebook page and YouTube channel. So, whether you’re home or away over the summer season, you will be able to stretch with me any time, any where.
Shining a light on local charities
Just when you think this campaign can’t get any better, the icing on the cake is that I will be using the stretch sessions to raise much needed funds for a different local charity each week. Shining a light on an amazing array of charities – Age UK Bristol, Julian House, Keynsham Food Bank, Suicide Prevention Bristol, St Mungo’s and Off The Record.
I have set up a Facebook fundraising page to collect donations for all of the charities being supported through the campaign. I will share donations equally at the end of the campaign. For those not on Facebook or would like to donate direct, I have also set up individual Just Giving pages for each of the charities. These are Age UK Bristol, Julian House, Trussell Trust, Suicide Prevention Bristol, St Mungo’s and Off The Record Bristol.
I thoroughly enjoyed running my ‘MogaDad Talks‘ campaign during Movember last year, when I raised a whopping £400 to support local charities tackling men’s health issues. So, I hope that this campaign proves equally successful in encouraging people to stretch for the summer, and also to dip into their pockets to support regional community services.
Spread the word
I would be so grateful if you could spread the word for my summer stretch campaign.
