THERE was a great turn-out for Horsham’s Sussex Bootcamps’ annual free week of Turkey-Busting Bootcamp.

Horsham Bootcampers raised a record amount of food for Emmaus Homeless Charity Brighton and Crawley Open House Homeless Shelter.

Ben Davis, co-owner of Sussex Bootcamps, dropped a van full of food donations off at Crawley Open House and had a chat with the manager to find out more about what they do over Christmas.

He learned there would be 48 people for Christmas dinner and up to 60 people a day in the day centre for buffets through the Christmas period.

As well as food, they provide hot showers, warm clothing, bedding and advice workers.

Steve Cork, Ben’s business partner, said the business felt very strongly about giving back to the community.

“We want to celebrate the success of our Fitness Bootcamps, feel it is important to appreciate all we have, especially our health, and to help those less fortunate by collecting food from everyone who attends,” he said.

Sussex Bootcamps is taking a well earned rest over Christmas before starting the next round of Bootcamps on January 3 at Horsham Park.
