FITNESS fans have raised money to help support a charity.

Lee Streater, who runs Lee S Fitness on Canvey, organised various fitness events, including a charity glow night, in aid of Canvey Island Youth Project.

The charity helps young people with issues such as homelessness, drugs, benefits and alcohol.

Founded in 1992, it aims to support and encourage all young people to reach their full potential by offering free, independent and confidential information, advice, counselling and mentoring.

Mr Streater said: “I can’t thank everyone enough for all your support and of course to my team for helping me make all this happen.

“Thank you to all the local businesses that donated prizes as well.”

A cheque was handed over to the charity after a bootcamp session run by Mr Streater.
