A STUDENT has become a trust’s milestone member.
Lucy Turner, 19, celebrated becoming Chester and District Sports and Recreation Trust’s 2,000th member by pulling on her running shoes and going on a two-mile run.
The Blacon resident received a year’s free membership to the Northgate Arena as a reward.
Lucy, a part-time waitress who is planning to join the police force when she completes her criminology degree, said: “I was delighted when CADSART called me to say I was the 2,000th member. The free membership will be a great help.
“I used to do a lot of sport at school and college but since university haven’t been doing as much.
“Now I’ve decided to get fit again and with the membership I haven’t got any excuses.”
Lucy, whose mum and dad, Gillian and Kevin, also enjoy keeping fit, said her next task was to encourage older sister Laura to join her in the gym.
CADSART operations manager Clive Donovan presented Lucy with a bouquet when she called into the Arena to receive her prize.
