Anyone joining Curves gym in Wokingham next month can do so for the price of just one bag of food.
For all of March, the Denton Road gym will waive its joining fee for new members in return for non-perishable food, which will be donated to the Wokingham branch of the Salvation Army.
Existing members of the women-only gym will also be encouraged to donate food as part of the annual Curves Food Drive.
Bev Gellard, owner of Curves Wokingham, said: “Collecting non-perishable food during the Food Drive is something which unites the Curves community globally and we’re delighted to champion the Salvation Army, whose goals of supporting and strengthening people in the local community match Curves’ core values extremely well.
“The Food Drive is a vital part of our community programme that fits perfectly with the Curves philosophy of promoting positive health and creating a community for ‘real women’.”
Curves Wokingham has been collecting and donating to charity during the Food Drive for the past seven years and has so far collected an impressive total of more than 4,300lbs of food.
