News & blog Latest news Nuffield Health and Wellbeing raise £1k with burpee challenge The team at Nuffield Health and Wellbeing in Yeovil raised over £1,000 with a huge burpee-athon at the gym. They did a burpee for every £1 donated and while the day started at 520 burpees, it had almost doubled to 1,032 by the end of the day. Steph Blakemore, who organised the event, said: "Most of us did 520 burpees each, but by the end of the day it was over 1,000 - one of the personal trainers still did the full amount! "We didn't set a time limit so some people did theirs all in one and others did theirs inbetween classes or seeing clients. Mine took me three hours." The health centre chose to fundraise for Above & Beyond to say thank you for care after a member of the staff sustained a head injury and was treated at the BRI. Gemma Jenkins, corporate fundraising officer at Above & Beyond, said: "The team did really well - not only with their fundraising but by doing that many burpees! "Fundraising with your colleagues can be a great way to build relationships while giving something back. If you're interested get in touch and I can answer any questions!"
