A personal trainer from Beckenham has raised more than £19,000 for charity - and smashed a world record while doing so.

Scott Lewis, and friends and clients from The Bath and Racquets Club in Mayfair, endured a gruelling a 24-hour marathon on a Cersa climber machine to raise funds for Diabetes UK.

The machine provides a full-body workout and is a particularly challenging piece of equipment.

Scott, who has Type 1 diabetes, said: “We wanted to do something extraordinary to raise funds – and so we picked the most tortuous piece of gym equipment we could find.”

The aim was to set the record for the most feet covered in a 24-hour period - and the team beat the existing record by an incredible 70,000 feet.

Claire Lubbock, Diabetes UK fundraising manager, added: “We are very grateful to Scott for raising funds for Diabetes UK. Every penny raised will help us to support the millions of people living with diabetes in the UK.”

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
