A PERSONAL trainer who raised thousands of pounds with her charity ‘fitathon’ has presented a cheque to the hospice that cared for her late grandfather.

Kellie Warren, of Stockbridge, organised an eight-hour fitness day on Saturday, April 5, which raised £4,077.56 for Countess of Brecknock Hospice.

The charity cared for her grandad, Andrew Judd, on three occasions prior to his death in December last year.

On Friday last week, Kellie returned to the hospice, where she had slept on the floor next ,at Andrew’s bedside during his final days.

She said: “It was emotional really because four nurses were there who we had seen when we went in with my grandad, and a couple came out to see him at home.

“It was good to go in and give back to them because obviously they deserve every penny, but it was still hard going in there.”

Kellie smashed her initial fundraising target of £500 and already has her sights set on another ‘fitathon’ next year.

She added: “My aim for next time is to put the cheque on the wall and say, ‘this is the amount we have to beat this time.’”
