Fit Feb

As we say goodbye to February I thought it would be nice to reflect on the tremendous effort everyone has put into Fit Feb. We have raised over £1000!!!! – but it is not to late to donate.

Because of the lockdown the idea was to no only exercise physically but also to mentally exercise as I’m sure we have all struggled to come to terms with the implications of not being able to do things we would normally or not see our nearest and dearest.

We have continued to receive support and wishes of good luck during this time including a message from Jack the Lad (Zoe’s brother in law). Thank you Jack for taking the time x

Our friends at Head Active joined us for this challenge and really gave it 100%! – Here are some words from a few.

I’ve loved being part of the Fit Feb challenge.. making sure I’ve been getting at least an hour of exercise a day, whether it be a relaxing walk, a boot camp or full on run.!!

So pleased that we’ve been raising money for St Barnabas as a great charity close to my heart since losing my friend to cancer last month.

Keep donating and let’s help exceed the target raised..

A message from Zoe…..

5 more days to go team Valerie Manor and Team Head Active!

We are currently at £965 for this special charity, St Barnabas House in Worthing. We can’t thank everyone enough for taking part and to everyone who has donated so far.

I’m sure we can make it over the £1000 by the end of Sunday!

I have loved seeing staff and residents take part and it has really motivated me. Jordan from Head Active has said “if you always do what you’ve always done you’ll always get what you’ve always got – It’s been great to have a new focus and different challenge as well as raise awareness and money for a great cause”

 On a personal note it has been invaluable for me working with Head Active since last year for not only my physical but mental wellbeing as well – a special group of people with a great ethos and support network so I see many similarities to Valerie – Thank you to Team Valerie Manor and Team Head Active loved this joint challenge!

 Keep the photos coming team!

Fit Feb for St Barnabas!

Since May 2012 the staff and residents at Valerie Manor have been dedicated to raising money for this fantastic charity. 

For those wanting to join the challenge as part of our team please donate £5 with your name and ‘Fit Feb’ and for anyone else just wanting to support us we appreciate your donation!

Whether you take part alone or challenge a friend or family member, all you have to do is complete an hour of physical or mental activity each day throughout February 2021, and get sponsored for doing it.

You can get fit however you like, and you can mix it up throughout the month. So, whether you jive, juggle, or jog… row, ride, or rollerblade… scoot, skateboard or space hop, there’s something for everyone, no matter what your age or ability.






We have now joined forces with Head Active to raise more money for St Barnabas – Head Active have helped me with my physical and mental wellbeing during this difficult time and it’s like a new family of lovely people!

Head Active are offering to help support Fit Feb by offering FREE access to their Live Online Program membership throughout February (normally £34) to anyone who personally donates £20 or more. This membership gives access to their “On Demand” members site where you can tune into over 1,000 different classes plus a recipe pack with healthy balanced meals to get you inspired in the kitchen!
