£1,285raised of £1,500 target by 47 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,285 to help fund the John Ruffell Fitness Studio after the tragic fire damage

    Whitchurch, United Kingdom
    Funded on Sunday, 6th August 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    After months of hard work on the part of John and Katy Ruffell the John Ruffell Fitness Studio finally opened in May. Many of us watched the hours they put in essentially turning an ex-garage space into a clean, well-lit studio that has become a focal point in Whitchurch for the numerous fitness classes.

    Sadly on Saturday 1st July a campervan outside caught fire and one end of the studio went up in flame causing a large amount of damage to equipment and furniture. This equipment needs to be replaced and John and Katy could really do with a helping hand from friends and those who train to get them back on their feet as soon as possible.
