A generous donation from parents has allowed a Bottesford school to buy new equipment for its fitness suite.

Students at Belvoir High School were delighted with the new equipment that arrived recently. The school has a purpose-built fitness suite which is exclusively for school use.

The parental donation of £7,000 allowed the school to buy treadmills, barbells, dumbbells, a leg press, chest press, shoulder press and a dual pulley system for a wide variety of exercises.

All students are given an induction prior to using the fitness suite and are carefully supervised throughout their time there.

The school said that in recent weeks the demand has been so great to use the new equipment that students have been queuing to get in and even former pupils have wanted to go back and try it.
