Whitford House Hotel raise money for SVP
A group of staff at the Whitford House Hotel Wexford decided to take part in a pre Christmas health and fitness challenge to raise money for St Vincent de Paul.
A healthy eating programme was created for each individual and the participants were monitored weekly by the gym instructors.
'Our gym instructors put them through their paces in the gym,' said marketing manager Eileen Comerford, 'they lost an average of 6lbs each.' The health and fitness challenge proved to be successful. 'It was a win win situation really, aside from the weight loss they improved their fitness and stress levels,' said Eileen, 'and at the end of it they handed over €800 to the St Vincent de Paul.'
