At BeGreatFitness, we believe in the power of community and the strength that comes from lending a helping hand. In 2023, it's disheartening to know that 27% of families with young children in the UK face food insecurity. This is why we teamed up with The Canopy Community Hub and Kitchen, along with Coldstar Refrigeration, to make a difference.
October Half Term Initiative: During the October half-term, the Canopy and Coldstar were able to provide every child at The Canopy with a nutritious packed lunch or a comforting bowl of soup, completely free of charge. This initiative was a small gesture with a big impact, offering relief to families who may be struggling financially.
Bailey Greetham-Clark: Leading the Charge: At BeGreatFitness, our CEO, Bailey Greetham-Clark, has always been passionate about using our platform to make a positive impact. Known for his dedication to fitness, sports and community, Bailey decided to take a bold step for a noble cause. He pledged to raise funds for The Canopy, even at the expense of his cherished moustache.
On the 4th of November, the culmination of Bailey's fundraising campaign was met with excitement and anticipation. Live-streamed on TikTok and captured on film, Michelle, the mastermind behind the Canopy, skilfully removed Bailey's signature moustache. This symbolic gesture marked a momentous achievement, as the campaign successfully raised an astounding £500. These funds will go on to provide nourishment for over 150 children, ensuring they experience the warmth and joy of the holiday season.
At BeGreatFitness, we're immensely proud to have played a part in this heartwarming endeavor. Bailey Greetham-Clark's unwavering dedication, coupled with the incredible generosity of our supporters, has illuminated a path towards a brighter future for children in need. This extraordinary effort serves as a testament to the power of community and the potential for positive change when we stand together. The impact of this campaign will resonate far beyond the holiday season, leaving an indelible mark on the lives of those it touches. Together, we've proven that small actions can lead to profound transformations.
