AN EXERCISE a day is the challenge in May for two Salisbury women raising money for the Mayor's Appeal.

From May 1, 51-year-old Helen Whicher will be running once a day, and 50-year-old Sandra Treslove will be committing to either a daily swim, run or cycle.

The friends began running together for fitness and stress relief once their children started school, but will now use the hobby to raise money for charities Childrens Chance and the Rose Gale Trust.

The two charities, supported by the Mayor's Appeal, both make a difference to the lives of children and young people.

Helen and Sandra are inviting the community to also take on the challenge, by participating in a sponsored activity everyday for the whole of May.

So far the duo have raised around £100 online, for more information and to donate to their cause visit the 'Every day in May' JustGiving page.
