A GYM in Durrington will be running fitness challenges through the night tomorrow to raise money for the hospital which cared for an 18-year-old who died from liver failure.

Lifestyle Fitness at Avon Valley College will even be organising a floodlit group class at midnight.

Manager Matt Sinclair said: “In May 2016 Katie Bayley had what appeared to be a normal virus but a few days later, she had a nosebleed that wouldn’t stop so her mum Michelle took her to A&E in Salisbury. She was assessed and quickly moved into intensive care as her liver began to weaken.

“Plans were made to transfer her to King’s College Hospital in London, but Katie’s condition quickly deteriorated and she had to be sedated before the move. She never regained consciousness.

“Staff in King’s Liver Intensive Therapy Unit worked tirelessly to stabilise and protect her but Katie remained in a critical condition for almost two weeks before she died on June 7. June 7, 2016.”

Katie’s family are members of Lifestyle Fitness and the gym is holding the event to help raise funds for Kings College Hospital.

The family has raised over £15k for King’s College Hospital so far with events including skydives, the Great South Run and cake sales.

There will be a £5 entrance charge on the night for the charity and the event is open to members and non-members alike.
