A contingent of 64 members of staff joined in and, in teams consisting of a minimum of eight staff members, worked out from 9.30 in the morning till 17.30. A number of the team (those a bit more accustomed to working out than the others) showed off their stamina by participating in more than one session during the day. The Caleta Hotel also donated a number of massages to those working the hardest and longest.

The event was a great success, generating over £4000 which will go to the PJ Isola Foundation. The Foundation is supporting local charities and recently donated £1,000 to St Martin's School to help fund their annual day out. In addition to St Martin's School, the foundation will be looking to work with the Happy Faces charity as well as Breast Cancer Support Gibraltar.

The success of this and other events will no doubt lead to ever bigger ones which the team of ISOLAS/Fiduciary hope will be supported by the very generous local community. Spirits were high all day...

Thanks go out to the Caleta Hotel for their hospitality, the staff for all their help and, finally, all those who donated so generously. Your help is truly appreciated.
