Local women’s fitness centres Curves Peterhead, Curves Inverurie and Curves Fraserburgh are inviting the women of Aberdeenshire to unite and help support local charities.

Curves, the women’s only gym, hopes its 13th annual Food Drive will be as successful as previous years and are asking for contributions from local communities in Aberdeenshire which will be donated to worthy charities such as Peterhead Salvation Army, Fraserburgh Barnardos and Inverurie Teen Challenge NE Scotland.

The campaign is part of a global initiative and these Curves are just three of over 50 Curves clubs across Scotland that are taking part.

Any new member who joins Curves between now and April 30, inclusive, will have their joining fee waived in lieu of the donation of a grocery bag of non-perishable foodstuffs. Existing members are also encouraged to donate bags of groceries.

All items collected by Curves will be donated to Peterhead Salvation Army, Fraserburgh Barnardos and Inverurie Teen Challenge NE Scotland.

Club owners, Maryann Bove, Glenda Beaulieu and Brenda Duthie agree that it is a fantastic opportunity to give something back to their local communities.

“The Food Drive is one of our most popular initiatives and last in the past few years we’ve collected 1,000’s of lbs worth of groceries in Aberdeenshire.

“At Curves we pride ourselves on being a close-knit community and the food drive is just one of many charity campaigns that we run annually to bring our members and their local community closer together.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming more women to Curves and supporting this local and deserving cause at the same time.”
