The Ipswich, Felixstowe, Kesgrave and Woodbridge ((BOUNCE)) classes were part of the nationwide fundraiser by the mini-trampoline exercise company on Saturday, May 2.

As part of the marathon, students and instructors completed five 45-minute classes throughout the day – raising £50,298.

The company’s chief executive Kimberlee Perry, who lives in Essex, said the fundraiser was inspired by members who work for frontline emergency services.

Kimberlee Perry, chief executive and founder of ((BOUNCE)), said: “At this time of crisis, it’s more important than ever to give our support and thanks to the NHS, its staff and volunteers for the amazing work they are doing to keep the public safe.

“Many of our ((BOUNCE)) army work on the frontline themselves – as health workers, police officers, food and supermarket workers and other vital roles – and we’d like to show our gratitude and appreciation for their efforts in keeping the nation running.”
