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.
2020 has been a strange year for everyone but it has not dampened our enthusiasm for Fundraising, we have held online raffles, competitions, quiz nights, coffee mornings and we have danced and worked out on Zoom and Facebook to raise our highest annual total so far.
In 2020 we donated funds to the following brilliant causes:
- World Wildlife Fund – Australian Bush Fire Appeal
- The Homeless Period Wolverhampton
- NHS – Funds donated to New Cross Hospital Trust in Wolverhampton and Russell’s Hall Hospital in Dudley
- Compton Care
- Macmillan Cancer Care
- The Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary
- For the Love of Scrubs
- JDRF Type 1 Diabetes Research
- Brain Tumour Research
Our total also includes funds raised to place a memorial bench in a local beauty spot to remember a much-loved friend and long term DME Fitness class member who sadly passed away very suddenly this year.
2021 has started well for our Fundraising with £650 raised so far for Brain Tumour Research.
We may be a small business, but we make a huge difference.
