With two online sessions on weekdays and the lunchtime slot throughout half term, we ploughed our way through many variations of squats, from sumo, jumps and lunges to everyone’s favourite, the gorillas! Each week, the number of repetitions increased until the final day when we completed two sets of 50 in the morning session, and 100 reps at lunch, changing squats with every 10! Thank you so much to all who took on the challenge and to those who have donated to this amazing cause. We have raised an incredible £1133 for Children's Cancer Research.
