MEMBERS of Curves Gym have been flexing their shopping muscles for charity.

The ladies only fitness and weight-loss centre in Wrexham are taking part in the Curves Food Drive to benefit Women's Aid Wales and their refuges in the Wrexham area.

Generous members have been donating bags of shopping to the gym for the refuges and anyone wanting to make a donation can drop off non-perishable food items at Curves throughout March, Monday to Friday during business hours.

Members joining Curves up until Friday, March 17 can bring a bag of groceries and have the normal service fee waived.

Last year, the international Curves food drive collected more than 10.6 million pounds of food for local communities worldwide

Sarah Jones, owner of the Wrexham gym says she is pleased with donations received so far: 'We are happy to be helping women's refuges in

Wrexham and it seems a really appropriate charity because we are a women-

only gym.'

nCurves is located at Unit 1, The Bridgeway Centre,

Bridge Road South, Wrexham Industrial Estate.
