When we set up FFA...
It was always about helping women, with fitness and with the wider health benefits of exercise.
However, we knew that there would always be women who we couldn’t reach, who were unable to access not only our services, but even the most basic services that we take for granted in everyday life.
We decided to combine our love of physical challenges and our passion to support women in all walks of life and set ourselves a target of raising £20,000 by the year 2020. Each year, we will select a charity that supports women and as a team, complete a physical challenge with the support and motivation from our tribe of staff, clients and our community.In February 2019, we absolutely smashed our goal with our Snow Triathlon, taking our total to £21k!!!!!! So, it's now time to set ourselves a new goal......watch this space
