My story

Where - Barry's Soho - 59 Kingly Street, W1B 5QL

When - 29th January - 3pm

Capacity - There are 50 spots available

How much - £25 minimum donation

How best to start the 2022 - with an hour of exercise and the chance to raise a lot of money for charity? Jude, Lucy and Robbo are hosting a Barry’s Bootcamp class in aid of two very important charities. We are asking for a minimum donation of £25 to attend the class with all money going to BHF and PADS. Simply sign up with your name and donation and that will reserve your spot. If you let Jude, Lucy or Robbo know your email if they don’t already have it, we'll confirm any other details prior to the class.

This class isn’t about how fast you can run or how much you can lift. We don't mind if you sit on the floor or walk on the tread or simply dance to the great tunes You can lift 2kg or 20kg weights, this is about turning up, supporting two great charities close to our hearts and having fun.

DSUK Positive About Down Syndrome (PADS). PADS supports parents and families of children with Down syndrome (DS). PADS facilitate much needed parent networks, share huge amounts of information and provide training and support for families and professionals.

Jude’s daughter, Vita, was born with DS in December 2020, and they’ve benefited enormously from PADS’s expertise and support. For Jude and Vita they’ve provided Makaton training, linked them up with local parents who’ve become firm friends, provided ongoing early development training and - most importantly - given them the information and confidence to spot a rare form of subtle seizure in Vita which, left untreated, would have rapidly led to brain damage. Instead, they were able to push for the emergency treatment Vita needed and she’s now a happy, thriving one year old.

British Heart Foundation. There are 7.6m people in the UK that are living with heart and circulatory diseases. With 450 deaths a day, more than 100,000 admissions a year for heart attacks and 1 stroke every 5 minutes.

Lucy’s closest family receive treatment for two genetic heart conditions and Richard, who she considers as her brother, passed away almost 10 years ago, aged 42. Lucy has worked with BHF research directly in their genetic research. The funds raised support vital research into genetic diseases, and treatment for heart attacks and strokes as well.

Sarah Robinson (Robbo), has a gorgeous son Parker, who has just turned 1. He was born with an inherited heart condition and received life saving surgery in the first few days of his life and is currently doing well and is a happy 1 year old.

Covid- 19 - We are obviously still in uncertain times. Currently gym classes are allowed to run and we will ask you follow the guidance of Barry’s for the necessary advice. We would ask that you take your own precautions to help us all stay safe and take a lateral flow before class. Should the class not be able to go ahead we will reschedule at a later date and let you know.
