Storm Force adds muscle to playground campaign

The new playground at Saumarez Park will move a step closer with help from Storm Force Fitness.

Storm Force Fitness, based at the indoor cricket centre, Guernsey, has chosen the Friends of Saumrez Park Playground as the next charity to benefit from the charity camps they hold every Saturday morning between 10:00 & 11:00am. Trainers will work without pay for the the hour and the Guernsey Cricket Board, which runs the centre, will waive the hourly rent so that fees can go directly to the charity.

'We wanted to get into the charity side of things but not supporting the same one' said Storm Force Fitness's Jon Le Tocq.

Friends chairman Zef Eisenberg said he was very appreciative of the support. 'Jon realised the importance, not only of the playground and our goals in achieving the new facility but that fitness goes hand in hand with them' he said.

'Money is coming in on a regular basis and we now have fund raising events constantly planned' said Mr Eisenberg. 'One of them will be a pirates ball in February as the whole focus of the new playground will be a pirate ship in the middle.

The next Event is a bingo night at Les Cotils on Tuesday 13th November. Tickets are available from Sarah on 07781 128341.
