Amazing Andrew Before & After for St Gemma’s Hospice!!

Amazing Andrew Before & After for St Gemma’s Hospice!!

Eighteen months ago ex-driver and good friend of Containerlift, Andrew Collings, decided to trade in his old life style of little exercise, too much unhealthy food and beer. The change culminated in Andrew completing the Bolton Ironman Triathlon yesterday raising money for St Gemma’s Hospice www.st-gemma.co.uk. St Gemma’s provide specialist support for patients and their families who have life threatening illnesses.

Andrew’s metamorphosis (or by his own admission, mid-life crises) began following a simple conversation with a friend, “how can I get fit?” Little did he know at the time what an impact answering that question would have on him and the many people who rely on the support provided by St Gemma’s Hospice.

The before and after photos of Andrew tell much of the story. He has shed over 4 stone and completed numerous half marathons, marathons and triathlons in order to gain fitness for Sunday’s Ironman.

An inspiration to us all! You can read more about Andrew’s mission, great work St Gemma’s Hospice does and make a donation at:www.justgiving.com/Andrew-collings3

Congratulations Andrew and keep up the great work.
