Community Foundation Champion Of The Month: October

The Hull FC Community Foundation has named Colleen Weatherill as the latest Champion Of The Month for October 2023.

A regular attendee of the Community Foundation’s thriving Unite Fitness project, Colleen has been selected as the October Champion Of The Month for her infectious personality, ensuring other participants feel welcome and a part of the fitness group.

Unite Fitness runs on Monday evenings at the Elite Performance Centre on County Road (6-7pm), as well as a merger session with the Match Fit project at the Allam Sports Centre at the University of Hull on Wednesday evenings (7-8pm), to form the Fit4FC programme.

Speaking to after being voted as the Champion Of The Month, she said: “I got involved with the Unite Fitness sessions just through my friends. They attended some sessions and recommended it to me, so I gave it a go and now I absolutely love coming down.

“What has been really helpful for me has been the staff. They have all been really encouraging towards me and I have noticed how my physical fitness has improved as a result of regularly attending the sessions.

“Since I have been coming, I have made so many great friends. It really is a friendly bunch – we all have a great time and get the best out of ourselves.”
