A daring duo took part in the KM Charity Abseil this year to raise money for people with a learning disability. Trustee, Paul Pinder, who is also one of our tenants, challenged Canterbury Community Manager, Della Heaton, to conquer the 100ft drop.
We spoke to our Fit Start Ambassador, David Benson, to get an insight into his healthy lifestyle and how attending the club has improved his well being.
