PUPILS at Belmont House are fighting fit — and fighting the good fight for cancer care.

The Newton Mearns school held an Aerobathon fundraiser for Marie Curie and Maggie’s recently, drawing on the Commonwealth Games for inspiration.

Southside fitness instructor Margaret Shenken led the junior pupils in aerobics routines and the seniors in aero-fusion — a class which combines aerobics with combat moves.

As well as raising a sweat, the youngsters collected an impressive £1,276 for the charities, and both the school and fitness teacher Margaret thanked everyone involved.
