For most people, taking part in one fundraising event is challenging enough.

But one woman is taking her fundraising efforts to the extreme to celebrate turning 30.

Occupational therapist Kate Hack is attempting to complete 30 sporting events to raise £30,000 for 30 charities in just a year.

The next fundraising challenge in her ‘Project 30’ mission will be held at Pocklington’s Francis Scaife Sports Centre on Friday 26 April, where she has organised a 10-hour ‘Class-athon’, which locals are invited to join in.

Kate said: “I’m kind of looking forward to it and kind of dreading it. I know the people of Pocklington will get me through.”

Starting at 9.15am and ending at 8pm, the 10 one-hour classes Kate will be attending at Francis Scaife include spin cycling, zumba, body combat and deep water aqua.

Since last November, Kate, who lives in Hull, has raised about £3,700 after taking part in nine events.

Among the charities she is supporting are the British Heart Foundation, Macmillian Cancer Support and Cancer Research.

Anyone wishing to attend one or more of the sessions during Kate’s Class-athon should contact Francis Scaife in advance to guarantee their place but can just turn up on the day and make a donation.
