Harwich Boot Camp helps out first responders
12:00pm Tuesday 19th March 2013 in News
A WACKY workout which saw keep-fit fans put on silly hats for charity raised almost £150 for emergency life-saving equipment.
Harwich Boot Camp staged the crazy St Patrick's Day fundraiser for the town's first responders.
Fitness fans turned up at the Irish-themed event at Harwich and Parkeston FC's ground wearing an array of bizarre hats.
Boot camp boss Sean McNamee dressed up as a leprechaun.
"It went really well," he said.
