Staff and members at Rye Sports Centre are being invited to get ‘reddy’ to take part in fund-raising activities.

The Wear It, Beat It campaign to raise money for The British Heart Foundation starts today (Friday, February 5).

Organised by Freedom Leisure, which operates the centre on behalf of Rother District Council, the event aims to raise as much money as possible for the charity.

Sports centre staff will be supporting the campaign by taking part in a team ‘spinathon’ event, which will see them continuously cycle from 10am to 6pm.

All staff will be wearing something red and asking customers on the day to do the same, if they wish, for a small donation.

“The British Heat Foundation does extraordinary and life-saving work and we are very pleased to be supporting its Wear It, Beat It campaign,” said Freedom Leisure centre manager Ian Oliver. “We hope to see many of our local community come to the centre on Friday and help support this worthy cause.”

The sports centre will also be hosting a Very Splash dance event for an evening filled with games, floats and competitions at 6.15pm.

The pool will be dyed red in support of the British Heart Foundation and is open to anyone under 16 years old.

The centre will create a ‘fun party atmosphere’ with lively music throughout the evening.

Around the centre, there will be photographs of the centre staff and customers will be encouraged to take part in a game of guess the baby photo for a small donation.
