Take Heart - Lita Freegard hands cheque

Promenade Down The Pier

Back in September 2014 we were proudly involved with a lovely day, assisting with the annual “Promenade Down The Pier” organised by Heart and Soul Rehabilitation Classes held by local fitness and wellbeing guru Lita Freegard.

The event, approaching its third year, was sponsored by Take Heart Southend and Hearts & Minds Basildon with the proceeds raised going via them to both Southend and Basildon Cardiac Rehabilitation centres.

It turned out to be a glorious day in sunny Southend and very successful seeing many walkers enjoying a healthy, leisurely stroll along the pier, raising the fantastic sum of £2000.00, which was shared between Take Heart and Hearts & Minds. Well done to all involved!

Lita presented Take Heart with a Cheque for £1000.00

Adding to the growing success of this special day, Lita and her team received some well-deserved recognition for all their efforts by winning an award at The Castle Point & Rochford 2014 Annual Sports Awards. Lita’s Heart & Soul Rehabilitation Classes won the category ‘Respect’ for the work that they do in the community and how the classes enhance the lives of their clients. Well done to our fitness guru Lita and we are as always very fortunate to have the support of such a special service at Take Heart.
