Fitness trainer David O’Sullivan has raised £15,000 from his fitness classs this year which is all going to local charities.
Representatives from the ASN departments of Bell’s Brae Primary School, Anderson High School and Brae High School, as well as MS Shetland and drugs agency CADSS, were on the barge Kalmar in Lerwick on Friday night to receive cheques for a share of the money.
Last year Mr O’Sullivan, who is a rigger with Petrofac, raised money for the Bell’s Brae and Anderson High ASN departments through “Challenge Shetland”, comprising sponsored classes for Shetland Gas Plant workers who lived on the barges.
Over the two years he has raised a total of £37,500. This year members of the public are to be invited to his classes, held on the Kalmar barge three nights a week. Participants will pay £1 per session, to go to local charities.
