This Fabulous fundraising would not be possible without the generosity of my wonderful ladies and I am so proud of all that they do. Our past events include, Bingo Nights, Quiz Night, Special Fitness Events that Glow in the Dark, Burlesque, traditional raffles and draws but, we have anything but traditional prizes, my very own talented mum hand crafts some incredible prizes that people truly treasure.

So you see, it is not just about the Fitness, if you are looking to make some life long friends and get involved in the social side of DME Fitness, you can help us to raise even more money for incredible causes.
In 2020 we started early raising £525 for the World Wildlife Funds Australia Bush Fire Appeal and £205 for The Homeless Period Wolverhampton, our chosen local charity for 2020.
Then sadly COVID-19 arrived and we were unable to continue with our usual face to face classes, but that was not going to stop our fundraising efforts, so far during lockdown we have raised an incredible amount of money with online raffles, charity classes and even a DVD of our favourite dance routines.
- £1600 has been raised for the NHS, this has been shared equally between our two local hospitals New Cross and Russell’s Hall.
- £1400 for The Homeless Period Wolverhampton, to help people suffering from Period Poverty which has been made even worse by the current situation.
- £500 for Compton Care, our amazing local hospice who care for people with complex and incurable conditions.
2020 total so far £4230. Lockdown will not keep us down.
We may be a small business, but we make a huge difference.
