CitySpace manager, Kevin Ludlow said: “It’s the first year that we have taken on this challenge and it is a great initiative for us to be involved in.
“We are urging everyone to register and take part as it is not only a great way to keep fit, but it would be fantastic if we can get the equipment for Portland School.”
