Over 130 community members got sweaty on Saturday all for a good cause

On Saturday morning over 130 participants took part in a cardio based work out at the Singleton Netball courts to help support local RFS stations.

Local personal trainer Jade Cuppitt organised and led the high intensity work out which involved squats, star jumps and excessive dance moves.

"I am so unbelievably grateful for every single individual who made an effort to come down and get involved," she said.

Jade told the Singleton Argus her initial goal was around $500. "I would have been happy with any cash raised on the day, but the total came out to be $2,298 which I am really overwhelmed with."

More than $2000 was raised on the day with half of the profits going to Whittingham RFS and the other half to Bulga RFS.

Over eighteen raffle prizes were raffled off on the morning with thanks to the numerous local business's who donated prizes of all kinds.

"I am speechless with the amount of people who offered their help and support on the day, from both community members and community business's involved," she added.

"We had Alsortz Coffee Van on site early to help provide hot coffees, iced coffees and iced teas and we also sold our home made protein balls, cookies and healthy snacks with all profits from those goodies going straight to the firies."

"The firies have been doing an incredible job this Summer and I hope this helps ease a bit of their troubles,"

Jade personally donated the cash raised to each fire station on the day, half went to Bulga RFS representative John Lamb representative and the other half went to Whittingham RFS representative Mark Hyatt.

"It was a very kind, generous and awesome effort from this young lady, Jade Cupitt and the Singleton Community," Mr Lamb concluded.
